This bill would lower the age at which a child is legally compelled to attend school from 6 to 5. It would also require kindergarten-age students to attend a "licensed" kindergarten program. In practical terms, this bill would prevent most Mississippi parents from homeschooling their kindergarten-age children.
This bill affects all families, including homeschooling families. It expands the state's control over education and infringes on a parent's right to choose to educate their child at home.
Died in committee.
