  • It should be Mandatory

    What jobs are there in real life that don't require a high school degree AT LEAST that aren't minimum wage? Minimum wage isn't enough to live on. In my opinion collage should be mandatory, although I relies this is unrealistic. It is setting up kids for failure to make high school be a choice. It is basically setting them up to live in poverty the rest of their life.

  • Secondary schools should be mandatory.

    Its not all about how many equations or stuff you'll use in real life. Its actually about all the opportunities that become open to us. Its also about the knowledge we gain. You talk about dept and taxes and all but if you get more then the basic education of primary school then you prevent loading yourself up on misery, but instead to live a life of comfort.

  • Yes. No civilized country has optional high school.

    The US, or any other major country, would fail if they did not have some form of compulsory attendance up to a certain point. Although not everyone wants to go to college, or should go, everyone needs to know how to read, write, do math, and behave like a civilized human being. There are certain things all citizens need to know and much of this knowledge is supposed to be taught in high schools. It is the equivalent of being forced to eat your vegetables!

  • It's essential

    Once in a (very) brief stint at a small loan company, I dealt with a household of five people. A grandmother, a mother, and three daughters, all that dropped out of high school. And all five had accounts with the company. That's what you're looking at with a history of no high school. Five people, all making next to nothing and investing those small checks in temporary loans that end up costing them a fortune. They're essentially paying for the right to remain poor, and they're there because they were taught you need to get a full time job as young as possible and school is a waste of time. It ruins lives.

  • Smart.

    Yes, high school should be mandatory. We need to make sure that everyone in this country gets an education that will help them advance and become better. For some people that may not include going to college but it needs to include high school. It should not even be considered a choice.

  • Yes, high school should be mandatory.

    Many student advance to college for higher education but still high school is likely to be the final place where lots of students receive education before they enter real business world. For this reason, the aim of high school education is to provide broad knowledge base for the student to build up specific knowledge at college or at workplace. In the same context, high school education should be a mandatory one.

  • School is very important

    High school not only teaches you English or math or all the other required classes, but teaches you how to be dedicated, and finish work and create and achieve goals that could change your whole life. Everybody wants money, that's a given. You cant make good money to live comfortable on without education. School teaches you how to excel in life and how to achieve great things. It teaches you determination. Every job that pays good money requires at least an high school education. The poverty percent is already super low. By not making school mandatory kids that are too lazy will just drop out and live in poverty. People, education is the best thing you can have in life. Don't ruin the lives of the next generations. Let them gain education, excel in life, be successful and make this world a better place.

  • No school should not be mandatory

    My brother dropped out of 9th grade, and he is doing really well in life right now. He has a good paying job. Why go to school and learn stuff you don't need to know? There is no point in it.. Just saying. Not everyone needs to know how to do non life related problems

  • No it doesn't

    If education in not mandatory for small kids then why not for big kids too. There can also be plenty of other reasons like abusive staff, stress, mental/emotional/physical problems, bullying, a corrupt system, bad corriculum, overly demanding/unfair dress code, overpriced uniform, etc. The point is, having school as a mandatory thing is unfair and shoul stop!

  • Most things we are taught don't help us in life.

    We're forced to take credits that we don't need for the job career path that we want to take. I am going to become a world history teacher. When will i ever need to know what a mole is in chemistry or how to find non real solutions in a math problem?

  • No it should not

  • Not until the high school curriculum is improved.

    Most of the stuff we learn in high school won't help us in the real world. It's just useful for passing tests, which is quite meaningless. Instead, I think high school students should be taught more about getting jobs, writing resumes, doing taxes, anything that'll help us when we're out of school. Most of us graduate from high school or even college not knowing how to be a functional adult. An extra few years of experience doesn't hurt, and in fact it benefits society as a whole.

  • No, high school should not be mandatory.

    By the time most students reach high school, they are aware that usually to receive a high-paying job one should have a good education, at least high school or even college. Thus, it is up to their choice weather or not to go to high school, which would reflect their likely career. It is still possible to find work without going to high school, even some high-paying jobs enough to get bread and water.

No, I don't think High school should be mandatory however I do think grammar school should be mandatory only because people should need to learn how to read and write. I don't think high school should be mandatory because unless you plan on having some big career it isn't nessary. Also in the past people have gotten very far without an education. For example Thomas Edison he didn't go to school for more than a few months and look at his achievments. However I don't think people should just be able to quit and do nothing either. I think people should only be able to quit if they get a job or do some form of work.

I disagree with high school being mandatory, but what I can't understand is why isn't anyone doing anything about it? If so many people disagree with mandated high school, they should protest because that is the only way it will change!
