Committee to Remove Threat to 5-Year-Olds: LD 1530 Update
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:
Once again, the phone calls and presence of ranks of homeschoolers has protected freedom for all parents in Maine. At yesterday’s hearing on LD 1530, the committee sentiment turned firmly toward removing provisions lowering the starting age for compulsory school attendance from 7 (as it is now) to 5. Thank you for standing up for freedom!
In the near future we expect the bill to be officially amended to take out all references to 5-year-olds. No more calls are needed at this time.
Our special thanks go to Representatives McClellan and Maker who took important leadership roles in turning this situation around. Maine’s leading homeschool organization, Homeschoolers of Maine, played a crucial role in calling homeschool families to action, and in connecting with lawmakers in important ways.
Scott A. Woodruff
