  • Check your state laws. In most states compulsory attendance ends between 16-18.

  • Cops can always come to your house.

    What they can charge you with is a completely other issue.

  • If he is still officially enrolled in school, then he is considered truant unless he withdrawls. I would strongly encourage him to get his diploma or GED, or he will be living with you 'til he's 30!
