Kentucky Education Commissioner Provides Districts Incentives to Raise Dropout Age

Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday is giving school districts an extra incentive to increase the dropout age to 18. Under a law passed this year, school districts may voluntary decide to increase the dropout age from 16 to 18. If 55 percent of Kentucky’s school districts adopt the policy, all districts must follow within four years.
