Re: Dropping out of high school - January 11th 2017, 01:45 AM

Hi Abbey,

I have had friends and family members drop out of high school when they were 16. Some of them were unable to find jobs as about 99.9% of jobs require a high school diploma at minimum. Some of the ones who weren't able to get jobs ended up on the streets. Back when I was 19, a couple of them stayed at my house (I didn't want my friends living on the streets). They eventually realized that they weren't going to get anywhere without a high school diploma or a GED.

They got their GED and now they have jobs. They work at McDonald's, which is better than nothing.

Point of my story. I highly recommend that you either stay and graduate high school or get your GED. I fear you will regret your decision if you don't. You could also look around for jobs in your area and see if any of them don't require minimum of a high school diploma.

Good luck
