Required Radio Input

I can’t seem to add the “required” class to radio inputs that are multiple words. CakePHP 3.3.12
tinyint(1) field name citizen, default baked code, works as intended (Class required is added, validated as required).
tinyint(1) field name us_citizen, default baked code, validator will not set required class.

There is a problem with tinyint(1) & cakephp. Better you change to tinyint(2), I think your problem will be solved.
