ADVANCE FOR USE SATURDAY, JUNE 16 AND THEREAFTER - In this May 11, 2012 photo, Springfield Southeast High School students are seen in the Introduction to Guitar class in Springfield, Ill. Days after President Barack Obama called on the states to keep students in schools and raise the dropout age to 18, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn proposed that Illinois should do so. Not everyone met the proposal with Quinn's enthusiasm, saying the state should consider it carefully before pushing up the age. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman))
