Welcome to FindLaw’s Florida Education Laws Center. This is your one-stop shop for Florida-specific laws on schools and education, including attendance requirements, home schooling provisions, prohibitions on prayer in public schools, and restrictions on the disclosure of student records. How about paddling or spanking as punishments in public schools? Florida still permits corporal punishment in schools, subject to prescribed procedures. The state has also determined that school attendance is required for children between the ages of 6 and 16, with a certificate of exception to be granted by school district superintendents.
