Lawmakers look to change compulsory school age from 6 to 5

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - State lawmakers are looking to change the compulsory school age from 6 to 5.

Rep. Sonya Williams-Barnes authored an amendment to House Bill 567 that would make it requirement. Teachers at Jeff Davis Elementary in Biloxi think the change would benefit students.

"I think it would allow parents to push them to know, 'Hey my child is getting ready for school. These are the necessary steps I need to take to make sure my child is successful,'" said kindergarten teacher Stephanie Stokes.
