Mandatory schooling/Do minors have rights?

Mandatory schooling/Do minors have rights?

Postby aphosca » Wed Aug 13, 2014 10:06 am

Hello all,

I have a few questions regarding mandatory schooling and the rights of a person < 18 years of age. It's my observation that according to Common Law, a child shouldn't be forced to be schooled, or punished if he or she refuses. I, being almost 15, am quite capable of reading, writing, and preforming basic mathematical functions. Although I much enjoy studying the law as well as various computer languages, I have no desire to have a strict regime that I must follow, studying topics that don't interest me or I believe to be pointless.

(I would like to point out that I'm not trying to come off like a spoiled child that didn't get his way; I simply want to understand my rights as a living being. :wink: )

I'm curious as to:
...whether or not I can be taken from my parents if I refuse to be apart of any mandatory schooling, be it public, private, or home based.
...if I have rights according to Common Law. (For example, I know how to drive a car, I own a car, but I don't have a license; what would happen if I went for a drive? I'm free to travel, aren't I?)
...if I could (theoretically) leave my current 'legal' guardian and go live in a hobbit hole, living off of rabbit meat and berries. :grin:

In my opinion, it's ridiculous that according to the legal system, the day a person turns 18 he or she is an adult, but the day before he or she is still a minor. :puzz:
I might also mention age has nothing to do with maturity, responsibility, or intelligence...

Thank you for your time and answers.

Thanks for the link, the article was rather interesting but a little hard to read.

Are you saying if I never reveal my legal name and I can't be prosecuted?
