It's never too late to finish high school
2 April 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

4/2/18. Kids, stay in school. No matter how hard it is now, it will be much harder if you drop out and then return to finish up. You have to give credit to people who finally realize how important having an education is, and then, despite overwhelming odds, return to finish high school. The graduation ceremony at the end says it all.
