Into to a public school and I am not able to pass then keystones so can I just drop out
1. Regardless if you can, you shouldn't. Buck up, life actually gets much harder than when your in school. If you can't manage to put in the effort to get a diploma, your life is going to be much harder for you.
2. Based on some quick Google searches, it appears that compulsory school attendance in PA does end at age 17. So, as far as truancy goes, you would not be violating the law if you stopped attending at age 17. Whether you can drop out over your parents objections, that may be another matter.
However, you shouldn't drop out, statistically, that is a choice that very few can bounce back from and have a fruitful and productive life.
Mandatory school attendance ends at age 17. Whether you are able to make all educational decisions without parental involvement depends on other factors such as whether you receive special education services. Either way, you are better off finishing school.
