Just heard a "news report" that every few seconds a high school student decides to drop out. No big deal really. Not everybody is "college material" as they say. The world needs truck drivers. Don't get me wrong. There is nothing "stupid" about driving a truck. Have done so myself in another life. I have actually known quite a number of college grads who, for whatever reason, decided to get out of the mainstream b.s. and pursue a career behind the wheel. So what if some kids decide to leave high school early. At least we could count on them not contributing to ruining the nation by becoming lawyers, "economists," lobbyists or some such cocksucker. They probably won't be trying to sell time shares either.
They can always go back and get that GED at a later date if they so desire anyway.
Of course some will do nothing but get welfare checks, brew meth, and produce future crack hoes.
There are two sides to every coin.
