Civics – Councilors push bill to reduce dropouts

Here's the article (from the Boston Globe) that Mr. V mentioned today in class:

Councilors push bill to reduce dropouts

You can also read it on the Boston Globe's website. Mr. V will give extra credit to any student that chooses to write a reflection of 10 sentences about this article! Some questions that you might want to consider in your reflection are:

  • Should a 16 year old student be able to make the choice now to decide whether to leave school or not?
  • Will raising the age from 16 to 18 actually make a difference in the dropout rate?
  • What are some potential problems with the bill that the City Council is proposing?
  • What are some of the things you think actually cause students to make the decision to leave school?
