Schools preparing for change to mandatory attendance under age 18

There are 1 comment on the Rapid City Journal story from Jan 20, 2008, titled Schools preparing for change to mandatory attendance under age 18. In it, Rapid City Journal reports that:

“Dropouts are counted each time. If a student drops out, re-enrolls, drops out, re-enrolls _ it's counted each time”

In the next school year, a new state law will make it illegal for students to leave school before age 18 unless they graduate earlier. via Rapid City Journal

It's about time. Minors should not be able to make life altering desisions that can be devistating to there futures, as far as basic education goes. After they reach 18 we can atleast say we gave them the opportunity. What they do with their lives after that will be decisions madeby themselves, as an OFFICIAL adult, in the big bad world.
