Minnesota--Governor Tim Pawlenty Vetoes
Compulsory School Attendance Bill

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Good news! A bill that would have restricted parental choice was
recently killed. On Tuesday, Governor Tim Pawlenty vetoed Senate File
3001 (House File 3316), which, among other things, would have raised
Minnesota's compulsory school attendance age from 16 to 18. Though
the bill exempted homeschoolers from additional reporting
requirements, HSLDA advocated for the age to remain the same because
the increase would have restricted parental freedom.

To see Governor Pawlenty's comments about this bill, go to

Thank you for your support of homeschooling freedom!

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
