You want to leave high school, think again. :(

You might want to leave high school now but you'll definitely regret this decision in the future, especially if you're a women. Because of the lingering discrimination in the Australian workforce, young women who did not complete Year 12 are three times more likely to be unemployed that males who did not complete Year 12 (Dusseldorp Skills Forum (2002)). There are many consequences involved with this rash decision. This includes: You have a higher chance of being unemployed compared to actually completing high school. Statistics (OECD data)  show that 24 year olds who have not completed school are twice as likely to be unemployed as those who have completed year 12. You would not get paid as much money as those who has completed high school. This is because you would not have as much knowledge as students who have finished year 12 and therefore, employers would choose students who have finished high school over people who leave early. If you leave now, you have wasted all your previous years at school. You have not only wasted the free education that the governemnt has given you but you have literally wasted all your years at high school if you quit now as they would be "worthless" in the future. Employers would need to look at your HSC results and school reports and if you do not complete them, your future looks grim.

You want to stay in high school, well done :)

Keep up this positive attitude while finishing your last years of high school. You are more advantaged than those who leave high school!!!
