i think it’s a shame that so many students are dropping out of high school. I was shocked when I herd how many kids didn’t want to go to college for no good reason but dropping out of high school shocked me even more. When I was in high school, graduated in 2004, there weren’t a huge number of students dropping out, but now there are way to many.
