House Bill 379: Raising Compulsory Attendance Age in Limited Circumstances
Representative Larry Bell (D-District 21)
This bill would require enrollment in school for certain persons under 18 who are being punished for crimes and who don't have a high school diploma or GED. The compulsory attendance age in North Carolina is 16, so this bill is simply a back door approach to raising it to 18 under certain circumstances.
