I am very sorry you are in this situation, is there anywhere you can go? Grandparents, aunts, uncles or friends? As you are still a minor, you need to go and speak to someone in authority about this, you may be put into a hostel for a while, until you leave school. Speak to a teacher, or an adult friend, tell them what has happened, even speak to your doctor!! I hope things work out for you.

Is it legal for parents to keep a 17 year old out of school against their will?

This is a tricky one... I believe that parents are allowed to do so; I believe that by law, kids are only forced to attend school until their 16th birthday. Parents still have legal rights over them until they turn 18; therefore, if a parent pulls a 17 year old out of school, I think's it's legal. Don't quote me on this!

Do you have to stay in the house if you are in high school?

In general, children under 18 or who are still in high school are not quite "people", legally speaking. They are under the care of their parents or legal guardians, who are required to provide for them and in return get to "be the boss of" them. So, if you're still in high school and your parents say you have to remain in the house, then you pretty much have to remain in the house.

Can an 18 yr old in Ohio move out of their parents house with a GED or do you have to graduate high to be able to move out?

Once you are 18 you are a legal adult and you can do whatever you want, living arrangement-wise. Your parents can also kick you out when you are 18 because they no longer have to do anything for you, insurance, car, money, anything.
