Storyline

Doug Miller has just become old enough to drop out of school, which he plans on doing. He figures his life will be so much better working at a full-time job than going to school. He also figures he is doing his working class parents a favor in dropping out as he can move out, freeing them of responsibility for him and giving their family more room in their already cramped house. Although he himself did not get an education and has turned out all right working the same job for twenty years, Doug's father would rather he stay in school, but won't stop him from dropping out. As the oldest among his buddies, he is the envy of his peers. But Doug finds that the employment requirements are much different than in his parent's day, as he moves from one dead end job to another, that is when he can find a job.

Don't Drop Out!
30 June 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Mature-looking teenager Barry Primus (as Doug Miller) wants to drop out of high school and get a full-time job. He thinks his struggling family will benefit from having one less mouth to feed. Although young Primus sleeps on the living room couch, his father wants him to stay home - and, more importantly, he advises his son to stay in school. However, when the law permits him (at age 16, presumably), Primus drops out of school. He gets a job and his own place. Naturally, things do not go well for Primus. This is a short film encouraging teenagers to get a good education. It's a cut above most message films.
