  • Need some answers... Tennessee

    Ok, I'm 17 and I live in Tennessee and me and my mother have decided that I absolutely cannot stay at my current high school, and we have decided that either a GED, or an alternative school would be the best route. What I need to know is how old must you be to drop out with a parent's consent in Tennessee? I'm not trying to become a lazy high school drop out, I'm dead-set on either getting my GED or a degree from another high school and then getting some type of degree from a technical college. Anyway we first just need some answers before we go forward in all this, and I sincerely thank anyone who is willing to help me out.

    Thanks

    ( Four states require school attendance until age 18 - Ca, Tn, Tx, Ut, + Wash. DC)
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      I know for a fact that you CAN get your GED at 17 depeding on how long it is untill you turn 18. Im pretty sure if you will turn 18 in 3 months you can get your GED. dropping out in TN is illegal, you have to atleast have a GED. You can get all the help you need from your school counselor. Im 17 and live in tennessee but i know i cant drop out (I got information on it) because I wont be 18 untill 2 months after i graduate so I would have only a month before i graduate when i am legally able to get my GED so thier is no point for me, but you might have a chance depending on your birthday.

        Then why did you ask?
        Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

        I am not now nor ever was an attorney.
