Current law permits a 16- or 17-year-old child to withdraw from school with parental consent. This bill would require that the child be 17 for the 2009–2010 school year and 18 beginning with the 2010–2011 school year. HSLDA opposes any expansion of state control and limitation of parental authority over a child’s education.
