Dear friend, I think it is a terrible idea to drop out of high school. If you drop out of high school,the best you can hope for is getting some kind of a job with no future. You will have toreal skills, no education, and no profession. If you graduate high school, you can getinto college, get a degree, and in the future get a real job or a profession. Its knownfact that people that graduate college make a lot more money than those who don’t.Preparing for college and studying in college will train your mind develop basicprofessional skills such as English, math, science, and history. College will also help you develop you social skills by meeting different kinds ofpeople and having different experiences. Through your life you will meet differentpeople and you will need good social skills to deal with people and get a head in life.Someday you will marry and have a family and you will need to support them. You willnot be able to do that without having a good job and a career. The job market is verycompetitive and to get a good job without a college degree is impossible. Graduatingwith a college degree will give you a competitive edge and compared to other peoplethat never went to college. Please stay in school! You will be making a huge mistake if you dropout. Yourfriend, Alain.
