FLORIDA BANS DROPOUTS FROM DRIVING
| TALLAHASSEE, FLA.
Florida has joined the growing list of states that withhold driver's licenses from high-school dropouts. Critics say the law, which took effect Sunday, could create a bureaucratic nightmare and might cause discipline problems by keeping reluctant students in school. West Virginia, Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana have similar laws, and dozens of similar bills are pending in other state legislatures.
