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.
