  • I wouldnt pull her out until you feel confident in the interview with the new school Just go from there. GL

  • My answer would depend on WHY she is failing.

  • layh41407 I was wondering the same thing. She is 16 and failed the last three years? So basically she has no credits to graduate highschool? Or, am I misunderstanding?

  • at 16 she can legally drop out.

    I'd think about the option of studying for the GED and taking that. GEDs are not a bad thing in today's world and get the kid done with the HS requirement so they can move on to whatever life holds for them next. Not everyone is cut out for school and classrooms.

  • You can try GED, but also she may need xtra help with a private tutor. Research and ask a school councelor what are your options before you make a drastic decision. Best of luck.

  • Actually, if I'm reading it correctly the high school that her daughter attends has had a failing grade for the last 3 years, not her daughter. I would get her into a good high school ASAP. Down here in my daughter's school district parents have the choice of sending their child to another school in their district if the school their child is attending is receiving an unacceptable rating. Go for it, it will more than help your child academically.

  • Whatever gets her the education she needs and wants is the best thing. Good luck with this!!
