When I did it, I was learning a trade for use after graduation.

What's the problem?

This is a good idea which should be encouraged. We should help students in identifying their potential areas in which they can excel as well as areas in which they are weak so that can help them in college and getting a college degree.

The school is now offering college courses in high school, at least they are at Camden-Fairview High School. One thing I did not know til this school year is that it's possible to have too many credits at graduation time. My daughter started getting high school credits her 8th grade year and all through high school she has taken courses that she would earn credits in. This year, she is a senior and was told by the school that she would have to take study hall this year or she would have too many credits.
