The state's compulsory education law allows the student to leave school at the age of 16 with the consent of the parent(s) or legal guardian. The student must first finish the school year in which he/she turned 16. I work in the public schools of New York City. Here, students need to be 18 to "sign themselves out" of school. But also, there are various programs, such as GED programs, that the kids pursue as an alternative to attending high school. Ask your guidance counselor.

How did warfare shape Roman society?

Warfare, over the long run, led to the creation of the Roman Empire, which was the17th largest in history. The horizons of the Romans widened to the reach of the empire. Many romans migrated to areas of the empire and the Roman legions were stationed in the provinces (conquered territories) of the empire, especially the border ones. The empire gave the Romans a multicultural outlook. It also created great wealth for those who could benefit from trading, investment and large scale farming operations. Warfare also made Roman culture militaristic and made victory in battle become highly valued. Military commanders were granted a triumph as a reward for victory. This was a procession in grand pomp to celebrate the victory and the victor. Triumphal arches were also built in honour of victors. They usually had reliefs depicting scenes of the victorious battle. During rule by emperors, the building of triumphal arches became restricted to victorious emperor. Victorious military commanders were hailed imperator by their troops. This did not mean emperor. It meant winner in battle.

What is baroque art?

The Baroque comes after the renaissance, i.e. late 16th century and most of the17th century.The Baroque movement encompasses architecture, religious paintings, and sculpture. Painters used rich colors and chiaroscuro (credited to Caravaggio) in their works. The figures in the paintings were naturalistic and frequently sported exaggerated gestures. The style was very emotional, and the scenes selected for the work were usually important and dramatic biblical scenes. The use of light was important in the artwork; it enhanced the experience of the scene.The most famous sculptor to come out of the Baroque period is without a doubt Bernini. His sculptures were extremely detailed. Bernini is arguably one of the most talented sculptors of all time because of the way he could manipulate the different textures of his subject in marble. He used large gestures that broke the plane of the sculpture to suggest drama and emotion. One of his most famous works is The Ecstasy of St. Theresa.One fundamental change that the Baroque style brought along in architecture was the use of the oval. Famously, St. Peter's Square, is memorable for its long oval shape. Baroque design also emphasized the use of light.
