truancyThe Massachusetts Graduation and Dropout Prevention and Recovery Commission met last week and determined that there is cause for the commission to recommend upping the mandatory school attendance age from 16 to 18.  Boston University School of Education Dean Hardin Coleman extensively studied high school truancy and is available to for comment on this, and other, education related topics.

As an educator in the Boston Public School System, I also feel that the dropout age should be raised from 16 to 18. Contact me as I would like to be part of this movement.

Children are being either expelled in my area at an alarming rate, or are dropping out of school. It is so concerning to see children out of school at zge 14 (expelled).
something needs to be done.
