“They ignore me,” is Allison’s answer when Andy asks what her parents do to her.

Abbie was watching The Breakfast Club last night. I really like this movie and watched part of it with her. It was earlier this week that I was shocked when I heard that the national high school drop out rate is 30%. This means, on average, that if my freshman son, Ethan, is sitting in a classroom with 20 students there are six who won’t graduate. What do these kids do? Does anybody care about them or are they just being ignored?
