anyone that thinks people should graduate high school for those reasons (needs to get an education) dropping out of school has nothing to do with drug use. most people that leave school have planned to do so long before high school.these are people with more sense of adventure. they are individualist. and they have common sense

The judge did an inspired job. I happen to know that this particular kid is very, very intelligent. His father is an absent, deadbeat, tax-dodging drunk. His mother is loving but weak,also a substance abuser.

I also know that you don't get anywhere in today's world without at LEAST a high school diploma.What Judge McLeod has done is give this spoiled brat a loud wake-up call. If Dustin hears and heeds this call, he has a good chance at a decent life. If he does not, it will not be the fault of the legal system. I praise Judge McLeod for his thoughtful and humanitarian judgement in my nephew's case.

"edwardo" is a drooling idiot to suggest otherwise. Reading his post suggests that he himself would have benefitted from Judge McLeon's wisdom. It's not too late, "edwardo". You too can get a high school level education, if you'll only lay off the drugs for a while.

the problem is most educated people think everybody should be like them. i dont think there is to much difference between an 8th grade education or twelve years. except for the fact if you refuse to learn in them four years you have wasted four years of your life and the valuable time of many others. i knew everything i wanted to do with my life when i was 10 and it did not include high school. school is for people that enjoy school. or what ever they want to do requires school.
