Official Analysis: This bill repeals and reenacts the home education statute and provides amended sections on the rights and duties of parents, notification and other procedural requirements, privacy, and due process. The bill also provides that the purposeful failure to provide home education shall constitute endangering the welfare of a child which shall be a violation for the first offense, and a class B misdemeanor for a second or subsequent offense. The bill also provides that failure to provide education shall not constitute neglect under the child protection act.
