age child can choose their own school

Add Topic
Hi, does anybody know how old a child has to be before they can choose what school they want to attend?
At 14 a child can leave home and apply for Centrelink benefits - does this give you and answer?
thank you, very helpful :)
I think you would be hard pushed at any age for a child to decide which school they wish to go to, as the parents would have the over riding decision, as they will be funding it.

  If one parent and child are saying they want to change school, a court will take into account the child's maturity and wishes…
At age 15 there is no need to involve the court.
