Gordon, William M.; And Others
A discussion of compulsory attendance legislation and issues relevant to home schooling are presented in this report. The first section offers a literature review and discussion of the socialization and academic achievement arguments. Section 2 provides a chronologically ordered summary of cases that address such issues as qualifications of parents as teachers, student evaluation and certification, religious freedom, state educational standards, and special needs students. The third section presents an analysis of state laws in relation to compulsory attendance laws and the legal status of home schooling. State statutes are classified in terms of state regulation of home schooling, instructional matters, and student assessment. (13 references) (LMI)
