I am 17 years old and failed 2 years of high school, so I still have 2 years left to do, which means I'll finish high school at 19. How bad is that? Am I a lost cause?
The bright side is you are still in the system and willing to try. Kid, there's many people who drop out and go back 2-6 years later to get their GED. Then they start all over again by working, going to college for the first time, or raising a family between age 19-29 which is way harder. I mean even age 25-30 isn't that weird to be in college for your 4 year degree either. Some people simply don't have the funds to pay for college. Are those people who delayed it by working and saving up money any worse as humans? No. You can even read about a I think 90-something year old woman who earned her 4 year degree or high school degree because she had to drop out of middle school/high school in the 1940's? 1970's? If anyone makes fun of you and they graduated high school on time it shows a bad character. They weren't raised with respect to others. If they are late like you and feel like dragging you along and say "let's both quit" ignore him/her. Kid, in this day and age even a high school diploma means something. It's something that people need on a basic level. So many people get into debt to pay for college because so many people are going to college it's basic necessity to go to college (for the right reasons) that high school is silly not to finish. What I mean is whether high school or college there are people who take longer or shorter time to get things done. Just get it done kid. You need to find a teacher who will help you. I was not in your shoes but I had problems with Algebra. With extra tutoring help from a compassionate teacher and tutor I passed. You may not have the same resources (private tutor) but it just means yea you'll take longer. You can do it though. Google stories if you like.

Low GPA in High School?
I have a really low gpa right now. I'm a junior in HS. I'm planning on doing 2 years community college, then 2 years university. My question is how will my low gpa in high school affect my future academics in my college years? Will the university I want to go to look at my high school grades? Will my community college look at my HS grades? How will this affect me overall?
How can I graduate early from high school?
Perhaps the most important issue to consider is - what do you want to do after you graduate. If you want to work, you may be too young for numerous jobs. If you want to go to college, consider in which colleges you’re interested, which major and what high school course work would help you for these majors.I graduated high school early, at the end of my junior year, because my situation at home was difficult. My parents were fighting, blamed it on me, and threatened to kick me out of the house. I offered to finish high school a year early, and leave in a few months.However, I really did not take course work that would have helped me in college (I attended Reed college, a tough school).In high school, I had time for only geometry, trig, and algebra 2, but not pre-calc, which I would have taken my senior year. If I’d had pre-calc (or better yet, HS calc - not offered then), it would have been very useful for my college courses.Also, I’d taken biology and chemistry, but not physics. Again, taking HS physics would have made my college course load easier.I did well in high school - in my junior year, I had the top scores, in my school of about 2,000 students, in both the math and English SAT tests, as well as a 5 on my English AP exam. (The only AP course offered at the time in my high school in California in 1969).If you can take courses at a nearby college, you may make friends there with whom you are more compatible. This could help you decide on a college major, and better prepare you for college studies.Good luck!
Why does nuclear power school in the Navy have a high attrition rate?
My recruiter has been telling me that I should think about doing active duty and do nuclear power school. Right now, in my situation I really cannot afford to attend any of the colleges that I got accepted into. My parents can squeak by in paying ~$7,000 per year but this really isn't enough. I would need $63,000 per year to attend the University of Southern California. I passed the ASVAB w/ a 96 and the NAPT w/ a 61. After thinking about the college expenses, it seems more reasonable for me to commit to the Navy but 6 years is crazy long. I would be 24 when I get out. At the same time, I'm curious as to why my recruiter explained to me that nuclear power school has a high attrition rate after the Navy SEALs?
How much should a 15 year old Highschool freshman football player bench press, and squat, also powerclean. I a?
It depends on how strong you are.... Work with your strength and conditioning coach and he should be able to make up a plan for you that you can follow that will enhance your lifting abilities... Good luck.....
How much does a 16-year-old boy grow in height in one year?
It depends if you already got your growth sprout or not. A growth sprout might add as little as 5cm (aprox. 2 inches) to 15cm+ (aprox. 6 inches), I think a growth sprout typically takes about 3 to 6 months but it may differ from person to person… so, if you already got your growth sprout you should grow about 2cm (aprox. 1 inch)in a year, but if not you may grow up to 15cm (aprox. 6 inches) or more in a year. This rarely happens but some people may get multiple growth sprouts. At the end of the day you should not worry about how tall you're going to be, you are who you are so be proud and turn hate into power. I hope this helped, have a great day.
Can it be rationally argued that it is legal for a high school teacher to have sex with an 18-year-old student?
If the student is above the legal age of consent, then it is legal for them to engage in sexual activity with anyone else of legal age. It may not be ethical, and it may not be moral, and it may result in consequences for the teacher, but in most states of the US it's not illegal to do so.Alter the age of the student downward, and it's an entirely different matter.However, in the case presented, the teacher is being charged not with statutory rape, or rape of any kind. Instead, she is being charged under the "official misconduct" law in New Jersey, which seems to be a questionable use of such law (to me):2C:30-2. Official MisconductA public servant is guilty of official misconduct when, with purpose to obtain a benefit for himself or another or to injure or to deprive another of a benefit: a. He commits an act relating to his office but constituting an unauthorized exercise of his official functions, knowing that such act is unauthorized or he is committing such act in an unauthorized manner; orb. He knowingly refrains from performing a duty which is imposed upon him by law or is clearly inherent in the nature of his office.Official misconduct is a crime of the second degree. If the benefit obtained or sought to be obtained, or of which another is deprived or sought to be deprived, is of a value of $200.00 or less, the offense of official misconduct is a crime of the third degree.L.1978, c. 95, s. 2C:30-2, eff. Sept. 1, 1979. Amended by L.1979, c. 178, s. 61, eff. Sept. 1, 1979.Ref: http://www.njlawman.com/new-jers...
