Your right to go to school

In every state in the USA, 儿童有受教育的权利. You do not need to be a citizen or a legal immigrant. 事实上, education law in every state says all children must go to school for a certain number of years.

The age children must start school is between 5 和 8 years old depending on the state. They must stay in school until they are 16, 17, 或 18 年岁, also depending on which state they live in.

Every community has public schools for all ages that are free, usually from the age of 5 年岁, but in some states it is 4 或 6 年岁.

Children in the USA must stay in school until they are at least 16, but they have a 权利 to stay in school for longer. If students are not ready to graduate from high school at 18, they have a right to stay or enroll until they are at least 20 或 21 年岁. In a few states, there is no age limit. 您可以 read in English and Spanish about immigrant studentsrights to attend school in the USA. 你也可以 see the school starting ages and age limits in your state.

不幸的是, some older students have been denied the right to stay or enroll in school. They have been told they need to go to adult education classes to get a high school diploma.

If you do not have access to high school, you can study online for a GED®, HiSET or TASC certificate with our free online GED® preparation class. GED®, HiSET and TASC certificates are instead of high school diplomas. They show colleges and employers that you have the same knowledge as a someone who graduated from high school in the USA.

Education law and rights for newcomers

Aclu 说, “It is the job of the public schools to teach you to speak English and to provide you with a good education in other subjects while you are learning. Students who do not speak English have the right to require the school district to provide them with bilingual education or English language instruction or both.
