Growing up, for most people, going to college is not an option- its an expectation. In our society, going to college has become a fundamental part of our education, becoming an adult, and for most people just simply part of our lives. However, as people grow up and experience reality, the realization hits that college may not be as simple as once thought. As much as attending college is expected from the majority of young people, dropping out of college is not. Even with the idealization of the college experience, some students are forced to cut their education short due to a plethora of issues.
It’s one of the most important life lessons to learn, and you must know when someone deserves another chance. Everyone messes up in front of friends, teachers, parents, etc. All these people usually get a second chance, and if they don’t use it wisely, they probably at least tried to, possibly earning another chance. Alex wrote in his note to the judge that he almost didn’t invite her because she didn’t attend the first concert, but he wanted to give her a second chance. This has not been my favorite chapter of “Notes from the Midnight Driver”, but is perhaps the most meaningful up to this point.
Some students dropped out of school as they felt unwanted and the conditions were not great. Sal Castro fought against such conditions and encouraged more students to enroll in college prep classes. Castro would teach his students that they themselves were not the problem. As the time advanced the students at Lincoln High School became aware and addressed their concerns to the Los Angeles School Board. The School Board of course did not pay much attention to them.
Most schools would suspend both students right away. What if one student in the fight had a good home life, his parents punished him, and he never got suspended again, but maybe the other student’s parents did not care, he would just simply get some time off of school, and continue to act out. If all students were talked to about what they did wrong and punished inside of school, there may be a chance to drop the percentage of kids that get in trouble. Yes, it may not be the school’s responsibility to punish the kid, but if they do not and neither do the parents, then who will? Giving out school suspensions may give the student that needs to be punished the most, time off from school, which is what they would prefer.
“Our review revealed that there is little resesarch to support the effectivness of compulsory attendance laws in acheving these goals (of lowering the droupout rate)” (Schargel). Each day more and more students drop out of high school and there is no reasonable explanation to dropout of high school. Most students drop out because their parents don’t care or the student finds school boring. Other reasons that students want to drop out is because they need to help there family financially or other peronal reasons. What we need to do is get students more focused on school and help them realize how important their education really is.
If you stay out all night partying then you will not do well in the class that you have the next day. If San Jacinto Christen Academy has not prepared me in any other way I am glad that I am prepared to stay strong in who I am as a person. I am not prepared for college. My school has not prepared me in the typical ways that you think of when you ask "Has your high school prepared you well for college classes?". If you offered me a chance to go back and be prepared for college in the typical way I would have to decline.
Moreover, according Chua’s book, western parents would avoid using insulting words.

A teenage mother will need a high school degree to get a job to care for her child. Most teens that end up pregnant will end up dropping out of school making it hard for them to get a job to take care of their children. Teens should not have sex knowing they have a high chance of pregnancy and they know that they're not in the right state to
If it wasn’t for school we would be doing nothing with are life and we would be nothing so high school is so worth going too and you would learn new things and get to do new thing in your lifetime so if you didn 't go you would be sitting on the floor or something and not doing anything with you life so get a diploma and get out there and do new things so you won 't be doing nothing my big dream is to be a seal and you need a diploma for it so go to school and it kinda makes me sad seeing people going down the wrong road and not getting one so if i was you i would get one it will help you so much in life and you wont say its worthless because it 's not you can do anything with a diploma and the more you think about it you could make anything or build anything you want you could make you a lot of money if you go to school and get a diploma i want to get a lot of things in my life and you need more for them and if you didn 't have a job you would get nothing you ever wanted sports if you wanted to play football you need good grades and if you want to play college ball you need a diploma
When I got the news that I was changing schools, I was not ready to leave the school, because I was happy there and had a lot of friends that I'm comfortable with. I wasn't willing to leave all of that behind. I was so adjusted to the school's system, and my grades were good, and everything was fine. I knew deep down why my parents wanted me out of there because the students there have a big influence on me, if they skipped class, I skipped class, and the school didn't do much about it, so my parents know if I stayed I'd get affected by the bad students. But still, I didn't want to leave because I valued my friends higher than my education and future, which is a mistake I hope
