Poll: Raise Kentucky's dropout age

A new poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Kentucky parents favor raising the dropout age to 18 years old.

Currently, students can drop out of school at 16 with a parent’s permission. But Governor Steve Beshear has pushed to change that.

The poll surveyed 1,000 parents in Kentucky.
