what age do you think children should be made to stay at school and if its over the age of 16, how do you expect them to attend. and what are the reasons for you choosing that age? apparently australia is trying to make children attend school 21, what do you think of that?

Keeping children at school is a hard one, firstly they have to be interested in staying, otherwise it can become a waste of time. My children completed Year 12, but a lot these days don't seem to think it is important, with so many handouts it makes it too easy for them!
