Bad Decisions

I have lost several students in the past month due to their bad decisions - choosing to drop out rather than do the necessary work. Learned today that several former students have made equally bad decisions and landed in a bad place. It is discouraging for me - probably overwhelming for them.

Kills me when I read the local paper and see kids names arrested for drug possession, stealing, etc. Yet, every time, that kid was already on the train track to wreck. Try everything we could, sometimes they just can't reach out and grab the helping hands we are extending.
I am getting a 14 year old 9th grader tomorrow who is pregnant.
