I just saw this on the news. http://www.news.com.au...

I'm posting this even though I doubt it will get much discussion (unless someone actually agrees with this...?) because I want to raise awareness for her cause :/

What is the point of a law like this?

Signed. Truancy laws are very stupid.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Totally unrelated note:

"college-level algebra"

Wtf? Unless she's studying abstract algebra, or linear algebra which I highly doubt, there shouldn't be such a subject called "college algebra" because you should have been taught it at the secondary school education level.

The sh1t that gets through our State legislature is shameful at times. This is the same state that had an anti sodomy law for most of my life.

There was a student who studied Linear Algebra at my high school a few years before I was admitted.

They would've likely said in the article that it was "college linear algebra" to make her sound smarter.

We've had a guy, brilliant, that's taken every math class, and literally had to have a class made up--"Line Theory", whatever the f*ck that means--just so he could keep studying.

College or high school? Independent study classes exist all the time. I'm taking an Independent class for my nuclear minor, because the minor was geared towards mechanical engineers and I was the only chemical engineer in the program.
