Under current law, children are not of compulsory school attendance age until they turn 7. LD 96 makes it so that, in effect, a 5- or 6-year-old becomes of compulsory age automatically by merely enrolling in public school.
Outrageously, the bill requires parents to “consult” with the school board (or the school board’s designee) if they want to withdraw their child from public school 45 days or more after school starts.
Some school boards only meet once a month. A family who is unhappy with the public school might be forced to wait a month before they could start a lawful homeschool program. No one should ever be forced to consult with any school official before moving a child from public school to homeschool.
