: Legal Foundations of Compulsory School Attendance Education (Multi-Disciplinary Studies in the Law) (): Kotin, Lawrence, Aikman, William F.: BooksCited by: InMassachusetts became the first jurisdiction in the United States to adopt a compulsory attendance law.

The Massachusetts School Attendance Act of specified that children between the ages of 8 and 14 were required to attend school for a minimum of 12 weeks per year; 6 weeks of a student’s attendance was required to be consecutive.

The concept of compulsory school attendance would gradually spread to other parts of the world, primarily based on the systems set up by Prussia in Early Compulsory Education Laws in the U.S.

Massachusetts became the first U.S. state to enact a compulsory education law inhaving already passed a similar law in when it was. Thirty states with compulsory schooling laws required attendance until age 14 (or higher). As a result, by72 percent of American children attended school.

Half the nation's children attended one-room schools. Byevery state required students to complete elementary school.

Religion and schools. State Compulsory Education Laws State laws requiring school attendance by children within a certain age range are fairly similar to one another. All states have compulsory education laws and allow exemptions for private schools and homeschooling, although the regulation of non-public schooling varies from state to state.

History books detailing the “common school movement” and the push for universal, compulsory schooling perpetuate the myths that Americans were illiterate prior to mass schooling, that there were limited education options available, and that mandating school attendance under a legal threat of force was the surest way toward equality.

West Virginia Code Chap Article 8: Compulsory School Attendance and West Virginia Board of Education Policy Attendance: Ages at Which School Attendance is Required: Children between the ages of 6 and 16 must attend school.

If a child over 16 is still enrolled in school, i.e. hasn’t already graduated, gotten a GED, or otherwise. The education law book, a compilation of state school laws in force, is published every two (2) years under authority of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in accordance with the requirements of 70 O.S.

The overwhelming majority of Americans would go up in arms. The concept of religious liberty is so deeply ingrained in our American heritage that there is no way that people, including devout Christians, would accept such a law.

That heritage was enshrined in the First Amendment, which prohibits. Public school advocates in the early 19th century like Horace Mann and Henry Barnard sought to create tax-funded public school systems in the states that, because they wouldn't charge tuition, would outcompete private schools.

Eventually, reformers pushed for laws making school attendance mandatory in all states (Massachusetts was first inand Alabama was the last in. Persons Subject to Compulsory Attendance Under §, [3] compulsory attendance applies to students who are at least six years old as of September 1 of the applicable school year.

The law requires a student to attend public school until the student’s 19th birthday, unless the student is exempt under §   Georgia compulsory education laws require children between the ages of six and 16 to attend school, with penalties including fines and/or prison (applicable to parents) for noncompliance.

While most school-age children go to public school, with a much smaller component enrolled in private school, some parents opt for homeschooling instead. Compulsory means something that is mandatory, rather than optional. For example, Florida has a compulsory school attendance law that states that all children who are either six years of age, who will be six years old by February 1 of any school year, or who are older than six years of age but who have not attained the age of 16 years, must attend school regularly during the entire school term.

Repealing the church-attendance law would destroy the moral, religious, and ethical foundation of American society.” After all, isn’t that the mindset of many Americans when they hear libertarians calling for the repeal of compulsory school-attendance laws.

The Puritan notion of education as a moral, social obligation was thus given the sanction of law, a pattern later followed by nineteenth century crusaders for free public education. Byall states had passed school attendance legislation, although until the s, many were unsuccessful in enforcing their compulsory schooling laws.
