Every person in control of a deaf child between seven and eighteen shall cause such
child to attend some suitable school, approved by the department, where the deaf are
taught speech and speech reading; provided, that this section shall not apply to
such a child whose mental condition or whose physical condition in other respects
than deafness is such as to render such attendance inexpedient or impractical or who
is being given private instruction, approved by the department, during the time the
public schools are in session. Failure for one month during any school year by any person in control of such a
child to cause his attendance as aforesaid shall, on complaint by a supervisor of
attendance, be punished by a fine of not more than twenty dollars.
