Why doesn't he go to school?
He moved from Ohio were he was flunking out due to skipping days.. He came here and they want to make him repeat the 10th grade which he had finished in Ohio and was in the middle of the 11th grade when he came here. From what I've been told he's not happy with going to the 10th and therefor wont go.
Well he should just work to get his GED and move on. If he's too prideful to drop back a year, he's going to feel even more silly being two years behind his peers.
I said I'm fine with him not going to school now and as soon as he turns 18 going to get his GED. But in the meantime. He needs to get a job to start learning fundamental responsibilities like getting up at a normal time, being on time, answering to supervisor, getting shit done.
