You know if students learned ENGLISH, you know this is America and forget Bilingual, maybe things would be different. It is too bad everything has to be Spanish as well, I guarantee if I went to Mexico to go to school I would have to learn in Spanish. Maybe we need to get priorities straight, education is more important than taking on parental responsibilities of helping with bills, don't have so many children and then they will not have to drop out to help with family bills, don't have babies until you finish school, and if you do it is your fault you didn't finish school. The cry of discrimination and racist is always the first word out of these losers mouths, instead of I MADE THE WRONG CHOICE. What a unique idea taking responsibility for what you have done or not done.

Yes the power of choice is the most powerful weapon a person has in order to better their life. On the other hand for many people, bad choices people make result in the lives that they have. And it seems today that personal responsibility for bad decision making is going out the window. On the other hand when one makes good choices in their lives, work hard and become successful, folks on the left feel that they are entitles to share in their $ccesses.
Some of the choices are obvious: Whether or not to stay in school and pay attention. Whether or not to get pregnant or wait until you can better afford a child. Whether or not to hit the bottle or do other drugs. Whether or not to keep this job you hate until you get another better-paying job. Whether or not to save some of your money, or saddle yourself with huge payments for that new car. Whether or not to live within your means or spend more than you earn. Whether or not to save for retirement or not.
Some of the choices are seemingly insignificant: Who are your friends? Whether to watch the tube tonight, or read a book on investing or other self improvement programs. But, and you can be sure of this, each choice counts. Each choice is a building block - some large, some small. But each one is a part of the structure of your life.
Use your power of decision making for the good!

It starts at home. Parents are letting their kids drop out instead of instilling an education ethic into their kids.
