Legally, students must attend school by age 7, however, "school" can be defined as a private school, charter school or church school with a written curriculum. I am so curious about this issue because of a relative homeschooling her 5 and 6 year old children. As a Kindergarten teacher, I see the importance of school. Does the state account for these children and require proof that a written curriculum is being used?
