  • Update: More Than 50 KY School Districts Will Raise Dropout Age

    Kentucky schools are responding to the new law promoting a higher dropout age. The law hit the books Tuesday. So far 54 school districts have voted to up their dropout ages. And they will each get a $10,000 grant for doing it. The change is voluntary right now. But it becomes mandatory once 55% of schools sign on. The law gradually raises the dropout age from 16 to 18.
