Should students be able to graduate after 10th grade?
New Hampshire is doing something right.
Yes, absolutely, students who are ready early should be able to escape high school.

When my older brother was in high school, he graduated a semester early. When I was ready to do the same, they changed the rule. So I had to wait until May, hating every minute of it. They at least let me take classes only the a.m. and knock out 5 credit hours at the community college at night. But I remember just being ready TO GO and felt like I was being told to not worry my pretty little head about that big world out there. Ugh. If a kid is capable of escaping the schools by 16, s/he should be encouraged to do so!
