Anybody but me wonder why +/- 10% of the graduating class graduated from PRIDE and not San Marcos High? On top of that, I’m curious to know why Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board paid 6 of them $2000 each not to graduate from the traditional high school program. Why wasn’t the high school good enough for these folks and why were they paid to graduate early?

I think the $2k scholarship for graduating early is statewide. People who work hard enough to graduate early are most likely going to college, and not being in High School that year saves the ISD and Texas Education Agency money at least $2000.

Actually I was one of those folks who graduated early. I did a full year and a half of work in two months thank you very much. And I’m proud to say I’m in my second year of college now and I’m doing great. People have certain things that happen in their lives and they have to do what they can to better it. I was an all honors student but my living situation wasn’t going well for me, so I graduated a year early. Any more demeaning questions about a person’s choice to graduate early take a different path?
