Governor Quinn wants to boost the student dropout age from 17 to 18, but one education official says there's more to it than meets the eye. Sangamon County Regional Superintendent Jeff Vose says Quinn must consider how to pay for it.
The State's Regional Offices of Education coordinate Truancy Programs across the state. Vose says they assisted about 15-thousand-800 truant students during the 2010-2011 school year. Sixty of those were in Sangamon County.
