Today education is a good thing to have in many ways. When you graduate, you can get a good job, go into the army, or just start a good life all together. You can’t do much without a high school diploma. Back when my mom was growing up, you really didn't need a high school diploma to get a job. You could go in the army and everything. Now, if you want to make it in life, it’s best to stay in school. And for teens that want to drop out, I wouldn't do it. That's a waste of life. You can get so much more out of life rather than dropping out.
