In certain countries children are not allowed to leave school until they reach a certain age, for example, in some countries it is 15 years. Should there be a minimum school leaving age, or should students and their parents be free to decide when they leave school?
It has remained a quite controversial topic that whether students and their parents
are free to decide when to leave school or a minimum school leaving age should be enforced. Since in the 21st century, education is placed on the top of most countries’ agenda, it should be implemented thoroughly and strictly. Therefore, to establish a minimum school leaving age should be necessary and enforceable.
In certain countries, children are not allowed to leave school until they reach a certain age. This is for the benefit of most children. It is harmful for a child to enter
the society when he is not ready to. Even children under the age of 18 are not mature enough to deal with the outside world. School time is the purest and the most meaningful and exciting period in one’s lifetime, and each children have the rights to enjoy it. Also, the government is responsible for providing its citizens with these facilities and satisfies the need of the children. Many cases have clearly illustrated that young people who have committed crime are closely related by their early school leavings. As there is no place for them to go to and to learn what is right, those young people are puzzled with the strange society and for the most time, they don’t have a proper job to live on. They are separated from their fellow school mates and at the same time , they find it hard to enter the adult world. All these may have led to the result of juvenile delinquency which has become a big concern nowadays.
It is true that some kids are not willing to leave school at an early age, but due to their financial background, they have no choice. On this stage, the government and school should do something to bring it into effect. We cannot deprive these kids of their opportunities of learning, therefore, a fund better be organized to support them to finish their study.
Kid should finish their education before entering into the society; this is
a reasonable doctrine for the good of the society and the people. To enhance their educational level, to reduce juvenile delinquency, also for the long term benefit, we should work out a minimum school leaving age for out children. The students and parents should follow this rule and the government and school should also play their parts.
