I just found out that my son was attending the high school because he is living with his stepmom and brothers and that the principal at the high that he was going to said that he wasn't going to make it now I ask you what kind of a person says that to a kid he is eighteen and wanted to go back so he could get the rest of his education and thats the kind of crap he gets from the PRINCIPAL what is the world coming to when that happens. So to my way of thinking that principal needs to get fired you don't go and tell a child that.
