Petition: Don't Raise the UK School Leaving Age to 18

The UK Government plans to raise the school leaving age from 16 - 18 years old by 2015.

All 16-18 year olds will have to stay in school, training or workplace training once this legislation goes through. All the names of the 16 and 17 year olds will be recorded in a database to allow local authorities to track their attendance. Those already in employment will be forced to participate in training one day each week.

Proposed sanctions for those who do not attend may include ASBO-like 'attendance orders',
