My Daughter wanted to go to a guy friends house from high school. when I asked her who he was and where he lived and how old he was she replied “He’s twenty years old.” HUH? “Twenty” I asked. She is fifteen and I said NO, of course. But what I can’t believe is that a twenty year old is still in high school, public high school no less!
What is the age limit on students in high school? I couldn’t find anything on the U.S. Department of Education on this subject. Does anyone know?
I can see if someone is slow or mentally retarded there might be an exception. If the student has had discipline problems when he or she turns eighteen is it time to go? I had no idea that if you don’t graduate by eighteen or nineteen in some cases you just keep going. When is it that someone is to old for high school, Twenty, Twenty-five?
If you have a comment or any info on this subject let me know.
