We used to go to various schools in the Twin Cities. Some of us are juniors, some seniors and Edwina isn’t actually a teen, she was returning for her GED. And Nora’s not really a dropout, she was never really in school to begin with! (homeschooled / unschooled)
It’s not like our individual decisions to drop out are final. But it’s definitely not “just a phase” so don’t try that on us. This is something that runs deep, and which we’re quite upfront in talking about. We know very well our futures are in play here, and there’s a lot we don’t know. That’s why we’re online here and asking you to talk with us.
