I knew of one high-school age dub that was allowed to remove herself from school to, supposedly, be home-schooled by her mother. She got picked on a few times at real school, didn't like it and didn't want to cope with it, so she ran away from the situation. No idea if she ever graduated or got her GED.
I thought it was sad that her folks allowed her to hide at home instead of dealing with what was going on. What kind of a learning experience is that? When adversity rears its head, run away? Doesn't seem like a good life lesson to me.
I also thought being home with her severely depressed mother all the time wasn't necessarily a good thing either.
