    Laws - View Law: TRUANCY

    (not being in school when you are supposed to be)

    It is against the law for anyone between the ages of six and sixteen to not attend school. However, there are some exceptions through excused absences, home school, etc. Even if you miss just one class period without an excuse, you are considered truant.

    If you miss school a lot (5 days, unexcused) you are considered to be habitually truant (ARS 15-803).  An attendance officer can enforce this law. The officer can give you a ticket requiring you and a parent to appear before an official of the court. (ARS 15-805)  If you are habitually truant you could be put on probation, have your driver’s license taken away, or have to attend counseling or educational classes. (ARS 8-323)

    I certainly don't like school. However, it's just a part of life, and I think it's probably a good idea to have lawas enforcing it. If they didn't, I'm pretty sure we'd all drop out, I know I would be more inclined too.

    Okay what if you have a teacher that has bad body odor and you can't stand going to that class? I think in this case the teacher needs a lesson in personal hygiene 101!

    Just from reading a few of the posts here, I must say that the horrible spelling and grammar are evidence enough as to why the writers should be in school. Good luck making it in the "real" world.

    School is not a choice! When your 18 you can make your own decisions, just like everybody else has had too.
