Excerpt from Official Report, Wartime Conferences on Education: Seattle, January 10-12, 1944; Atlanta, February 15-17, 1944; New York, February 22-24, 1944; Chicago, February 28-March 1, 1944; Kansas City, March 8-10, 1944 The school-leaving Age - Contrasting sharply with 1940 America, where 73 percent of youth ages fourteen to seventeen were in school, some 86 percent of United Kingdom youth leave school at fourteen. The new bill proposes to raise this to fifteen at the earliest possible date after April 1. 1945, later to sixteen, and contemplates part-time education until age eighteen. When the present shortage of school buildings, personnel, sup plies, and equipment is realized, the need for this preliminary period of preparation is obvious. And they have set the date for the initiation of this program at April 1, 1945. That is the day when the school-leaving age goes up. They want to take this year to get ready for it.
