Skipping school at the age of 18 because you're stuck anyway?

I am 18 years old and am currently in the 11th grade, so I already have my main and real diploma. I'm currently in a situation where I'm sure I'll stay put anyway and just register for another school and repeat myself there. That's why I wanted to ask if I could skip the rest of the days now, as in my opinion it makes no sense to go on and let the teachers put me down unnecessarily by humiliating me in front of the class. The teachers often emphasize that we are there voluntarily, but is that really the case?



------------------------

yes, just tail. Excuse yourself with a made-up illness like “stomach ache” and you’ll be fine. But don't overdo it and tackle it properly next school year.



------------------------

Of course you can, you are of legal age and areno longer required to attend school. However, if you fly out of school because of your absences, there could be problems with child benefit. Therefore, I would recommend not dropping out until you already have a secure place at school for the next school year. But I understand that you don't want to go there anymore. Maybe you can call in sick while you look for another school?



------------------------

Thanks for the answer! But I would have to go to school to call in sick. Would it be enough if I just went there in the last week of school and had everyone call in sick?



------------------------

Why do you have to go there specifically? I would simply call the office to say I'm sick and can't come. Do you have to provide a certificate?



------------------------

What do you mean? I'd have to call every day, wouldn't I? In addition, with us it is the case that II have to apologize for the individual lessons in different subjects by providing proof of my handwritten, signed apology



------------------------

What kind of stupid regulation is that...Then it's best to go to the doctor and ask if he can give you sick leave for a certain period of time. You simply hand the certificate in to the school and you're good.



------------------------

Of course you can, you are of age and are no longer required to go to school

It is not correct. If you only base your age on it, compulsory schooling ends at the end of the school year in which you turn 18, not on the day of your birthday.In addition The question then arises as to whether all compulsory schooling has already been fulfilled or just full-time compulsory schooling. And at the age of 18, you can still miss a year.



------------------------

"In Germany, school attendance is compulsory from the 6th to the 18th. Year of life."

Since the FS wants to continue going to school anyway, that doesn't really matter anyway.



------------------------

If you do not provide a certificate in the summer that shows that you have attended school as required, your child benefit could be canceled. This will be reclaimed if necessary. I would be careful.



------------------------

What do you mean by “duly present”?



------------------------

If you have so many unexcused absences that the year is not recognized.



------------------------

Uh, the opposite,... sorry.



------------------------

I'm confused 😅 so if I have so many excused absences that year won't be recognized. do you mean it like that?



------------------------

Yes. A student who has hardly ever been there can be denied a certificate at the end of the year. Without the gThere are problems with child benefit.
