Providing for the Family

Is the need to provide money for the family a worthwhile reason for a teen to leave high school? What are the long term repercussions?

We think that it is not a good reason for a teen to leave high school, no matter what. This could interfere with their future, causing them to not get the good job they want and deserve. It could also send the teen bills for not completing high school in later life. Not finishing school could hold the student back from going to college, hurting their education. We agree that all kids should go to and finish school for success in later life.
