    This is a great way to raise those graduation rates. It will cost a zillion dollars. It will lower the bar for all students. It will make schools less safe.

    Overall, it will decrease learning, but hey - everyone knows that's not the real purpose of school.

    Thank you president Obama. I look forward to working with more kids with violent criminal histories. :evil:

    Some kids are just unwilling to learn. It will make the job harder for those teachers who want to teach and for those kids who want to learn, for a kid who is forced to remain in school until he graduates.

    so your republican governor isn't going to sign it. right?

    first off, coming out of committee doesn't mean it's going to be law. right? second, isn't joisey run by republicans?

    i'm not quite sure how you extrapolate out from encouragement of education in the SOTU to this bill. but what the heck, it must be obama's fault.

    i am so glad most teachers do not have your sorry attitude towards the kids they teach......do yourself a favor and do the kids a favor...find another occupation that does not make you so bitter

    TRENTON — Since at least 2002, a bill to make students stay in school until they turn 18 has been introduced in every session of the state Legislature, but it never went very far before dying with a thousand other bills.

    Eighty-seven percent of New Jersey students graduate high school — the highest rate in the nation, according to the Diplomas Count 2011 report, an annual review of graduation rates. But the number of graduates could decline once the state institutes a more rigorous, federally mandated method for calculating the statistic .

    Some kids would be better off dropping out of HS and learning a trade.

    yes. and there used to be good vocational high schools. there might still be in some places. but you can't do the programs if you suck all the money out of government.
