"You don't want to be the county that doesn't raise your drop out rate, you'll get known as the dropout county. I wouldn't want that distinction so, I think this is a good thing and I think they all will. I think it will be more than 55. It's one of those snowballs, once it gets rolling, it will be a good snowball," Henderson County School Board Member, Lisa Baird said.
No word on when the Henderson County Board of Education will vote on the issue, but two board members say they will most likely vote yes.
Webster County School Superintendent, James Kemp says you can't deny somebody an education, and this bill will help. The Webster County School Board plans to vote on April 8th.
