    Lawyer agrees


    Answered . Technically yes, since the law requires school attendance to age 18, unless there is graduation, GED or emancipation. You would be well-served to consult with an attorney, with your child present, to discuss the alternatives available, since it appears to be an ongoing issue for you.
