A bill proposed Wednesday would raise the age at which students could legally drop out of school in North Carolina without permission from their parents from 16 to 18.

Sponsored by State Reps. Donny Lambeth, R-Forsyth; Chris Whitmire, R-Transylvania; Marcus Brandon, D-Guilford; and Nathan Ramsey, R-Buncombe, House Bill 235 would require a parent’s signature before students under the age of 18 could drop out of school. The bill would also require parents and students to receive dropout counseling from their school that would include information about the effects of leaving school early.
