To what age do you think children should be made to go to school? If it is over 16, hoe do you expect them to attend? For what reason did you choose the age? I have heard that some places want to make the age 21, which I think is a bit extreme.

I live in the UK and the school that my children go to has an integrated nursery which means that all my children started school at the tender age of 3. My daughter is now 2 and she will start at the nursery September 09 when she will be 3 years and 9 months, I think that this is too young but if I do not send her then it will affect her chances of getting into the proper school. As to what age they leave I think that it should be 18. My son is now 16 and is just taking his final exams before leaving school, he did not have a clue what he wanted to do until the last minute and he still does not really seem fully interested in the college course that he is going to take. I think if they are at school a little longer maybe they will have a better idea of what they want to do, and if the college is integrated somehow into the school curriculam it may prevent a lot of the kids leaving school and just falling to the wayside. I agree that 21 is a bit too much.
