“So That Nobody Has to Go to School If They Don’t Want To” Sipher Roger states throughout his rather drawn out article trying to get his point across. 3 Solid Points: Immature minds can’t make wholesome decisions, more citizens will be on governmental assistance, and it would stunt someone who was destined for greatness. On the monstrous streets of New York is a single child named Antoine. Antoine’s superb mind towers his counterparts and even though he is only in eighth grade, his intellectual abilities troupe those of a higher grade. One day he decides not to attend school because it wasn’t required. Growing up in such a harsh side of town forces him to take on another occupation as a drug dealer and quit school altogether; little did Antoine know, he had the mind to change the world. If this single decision can affect one so drastically, who else could fall below this crude fate? I definitely disagree with Roger Sipher’s,”So That Nobody Has to Go to School If They don’t want To”, because: immature minds can’t make wholesome decisions, it would affect the economy as a whole, and it would stunt countless beings from achieving their full potential. Sipher Roger, insists that “One reason for the crisis is that present mandatory-attendance laws force many to attend school who have no wish to be there. Such children have little desire to learn and are so antagonistic to school that neither they nor more highly motivated students receive the quality education that is the birthright of every American.” He, couldn’t have it more backwards, we understand that mandatory-attendance laws make requirements for children to show up at school. However, it doesn’t mean if that wasn’t a law those students wouldn’t show up to have the opportunity to try and better their lives in since. Student’s now don’t have to go to school it’s not like when they leave the house at 8 o'clock
