First off: I’m 16 & plan on attending make up artistry school after high school.
I’ve already discussed this with my parents and they have no problem with it, except my dad says he won’t pay for MUA school unless I graduate.
I’m smart, but have always had problems with school,
This past year I attended CAVA (it’s an online academy for california residents) for the first time but that didn’t work out because I procrastinate & get distracted easily.
For the past couple of months I’ve been looking into getting my GED.
I KNOW it’s not easy so don’t think I’m just trying to get out of going to school.
I really just want to BE DONE with school already, i feel like it’s holding me back, but I read that you have to be 17 and within 60 days of your 18th birthday to take the GED test, is that true?
and how would I explain all of this to my parents?
Basically: I want to drop out & get my G.E.D. but I’m too young.
I think my parents will be concerned with me dropping out because they don’t want me to regret it later on.
I feel stuck.
I really don’t think I can take another year of high school (I’m a junior), let alone actually pass.
How do I convince my parents that It’s the right thing for me?
i think it’s wiser for you to finish ur last yr in high school.. a high school diploma is better than a GED… you might regret droping out of school. i regret it.
i put a star for u in case my contacts want to answer your question
