In 2006, I dropped out of school because I really felt like it was pointless. I was going thru a whole lot in my life, with family and more. And, going to school made everything seem even more stressful because it felt like I wasn't learning anything. I pretty much learned more in middle school than in high school, so I figured, "Why, go?"
Now, I'm stable and going to an alternative school where I'm about to get my GED and job training skills. I actually feel like I'm working towards something and not just having to do tons of homework. I would also like to say that, I actually get commented at this school. I get comments for doing the most simple things, as where in high school I would do packs of work and just was told if I failed or passed.
If, students in regular schools felt like they were actually getting something done in sort of an enjoyable way, they might not be so quick to drop out. That's my opinion.
