A Classic Example Of Who Quits School
Sleeping in the living room in an overcrowded house. My ex-BF quit in the 11th grade because there were 9 other kids in that family, the widowed mother didn't earn enough - so the oldest two went off to work. A year later, he's working asphalt paving.
Funny, today that dropout gets $5400 a month SSD+Union Disability+Company pension. And he's barely 60.

I didn't drop out! I just left school!
Great drama about a student who drops out of school, just like his Dad did, expecting to find jobs just waiting for him! This is not exactly the case, and he struggles quite a bit. This was a tremendously acted movie, full of great believability by Barry Primus. This is a MUST SEE on this site!
