Bill would keep youths in school to 18
ST. PAUL - If the state required students to remain in school until they are 18 years old, they would earn more money and be more emotionally stable, some Minnesota lawmakers say.
If a person drops out of high school, they are at financial and emotional risk, said Sen. Charles W. Wiger, DFL-Maplewood, author of the Senate bill to require students to remain in school until they are 18. "Being able to drop out at 16 is unacceptable."
