Wilmington council members are calling on Gov. Jack Markell and state lawmakers to raise the age for compulsory school attendance so that students would be required to attend until they were 18 years old.
City lawmakers passed the a resolution Thursday night with the support of advocates. Currently, Delaware law allows a juvenile to drop out of high school at age 16.
Nothing new with the call for this change!
