Why kids should go to school and stay in it?
Don't you want to be able to graduate highschool?
Don't you want to be happy like these kids?
Don't you want to have a good future ahead of you like these graduates have?
Highschoolers can do whatever they want according to the first amendment, which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” They should stay in school for their own good. This is why they should stay in school. Of all highschoolers drop out in the United States 16% of them are unemployed, 32% of them are below the poverty line, which means they just have enough money to pay bills, and food. The average jobs for dropouts are construction, food services, and landscaping industries, theses jobs earn an average pay of $12.75 per hour. 60-year-old dropouts earn an average of $16.50 per hour in construction, food services, and truck transportation. 33% of female dropouts have given birth, 13% of male and female dropouts are separated or divorced, 32% are unhealthy, and 22% are reported being unhappy.
If kids stay in school they could help the economy by creating more jobs with higher educated people. Everyone wants more jobs and more opportunity. Then if there were more jobs created less people would be unemployed sitting on the street asking for money from complete strangers. So if you want to help improve the economy go to school. Also less people would be protesting about how they want jobs.
