1. Education is a fundamental right. Rose V. Council for Better Education, Inc, KY., 790 S.W. 2d 186 (1989). Compulsory attendance laws require that every child between the ages of 6 and 16 be enrolled in school. KRS 159.030 exempts a child from attending public school who is enrolled and regularly attending a private, parochial or church regular day school. When you decide to educate your children at home, you must notify the local board of education by letter of intent to teach your child(ren) at home, giving the names, ages, and address of each child. You should keep a copy of this letter.
