Laws and regulations affect what you can do in your home. As long as Tennessee has a compulsory attendance law, families must carefully watch what the legislature is enacting and what the various departments of state government are requiring with their rules and regulations. Constant vigilance is mandatory. During the legislative session, THEA sends out the THEA Observer -- email updates on current legislative activity.
