My question involves education law in the State of: New York.
I'm dealing with things (personal), and it would just be easier to drop out of high school for a year. I am 18 years old.
I told my mom I wanted to, and think that would be the best for my health, and the wellness and health of my boyfriend (best friends since 12. He just turned a year older than me), and she replied with "You can not. You need my permission, and I say no. Suck it up, and be a woman."
I have had a few teachers even tell me on some days, that I probably shouldn't be in school that week.
And my friend's parents agree that it would be the best thing for me for now.
Do i actually need her permission to drop out of high school, and move?
