Grades don't matter!
One of my daughters friends is going to drop out and take his GED instead of getting his high school diploma. I am floored that his parents seem to be just fine with this. They own a plumbing business and the son plans on becoming a plumber and working for the family company.
I'm trying to understand their thought process, but I really can't. His words were "Grades don't matter. I'm going into a trade!"
But what if that doesn't work out? Wouldn't it be better to have something to fall back on, least of all a high school diploma?
Am I crazy here?
