So Arizona has a bad drop out rate, but Tucson is making a program by rewarding kids $25 a week to stay in school!!! This is just crazy!
Sadly, all the kids I knew that dropped out when I was going to high school usually dropped out their senior year. Specifically before or after spring break of their senior year!! It's just beyond sad. And all these kids who dropped out for reasons God only knows I managed to still be acquainted with after all these years have gone NO WHERE in their lives and working at places like Taco Bell or Burger King.
I just wish we had this program when I was in school =(. I wasn't the best or the most motivated, but hey, haven't we all imagined at one point during our student years that we get paid to do this? Now kids in Tucson today can if you got a clean act.
