Unless you are incarcerated by a proper judicial mandate, no one can force you to do pretty much anything you don't wanna.
If you forfeit your right, as a minor, to be educated at the expense of the state, you may find it expensive as an adult to catch up on that sweet, sweet free classroom you walked out on.

I saw your vote Ariana - so what's the harm in stayin?

You know the number of former teenagers who regret getting their HS Diploma? The same number of former babies who regret getting toilet-trained.

Werd.

I dropped out of high school. I also have three degrees, have never been turned down for a job, and have owned my home since I was 19. When kids drop out of school, they are escaping something that harms them in its present form.

Obviously, Phil. Your erudition(well, at least your Askudition) is unparallelled.

Dash it all! I'm all out of disposable email addys, so this is where I make last stand. Don't tell the mods, please. I'll hide in the "I'm having an emergency medical episode" threads, they never look there.

Drop out, or leave with permission? Assuming you are 18, you can leave at any time. Under 18, you might be subject to whichever States requirements are for mandatory education. Varies by state.

Why would you want to know? You can tell its a bad idea, and curiosity would have been stated.
