Which US State was the last to introduce compulsory education?

Alabama, 1816
Arizona, 1848
Alaska, 1880
Mississippi, 1918
Com­pul­so­ry ed­u­ca­tion was not part of early American society, which relied instead on church-run private schools that mostly charged fees for tuition. Com­pul­so­ry school at­ten­dance based on the Prussian model reached the American Com­mon­wealth of Mass­a­chu­setts in 1852, and grad­u­al­ly spread other states until 1918. Mis­sis­sip­pi was the last state to enact a com­pul­so­ry at­ten­dance law.
