Early School Leaver program gives students a chance for education, work
When Eric Kasanda was in his senior year at Downers Grove South High School, he felt like he wasn't in the right place.
"High school just wasn't working for me," he said. "Between teachers and lifestyle of learning and my own personal needs for learning, high school just was not working for me at all."
His grades in classes such as history and math were steadily dropping, and when he was told by a guiance counselor that he was going to be a few credits short of graduating on time, he nearly lost hope. But another counselor saw his good grades in his electronics and applied technology classes - "anything where I was working with my hands," he said - and suggested he consider the Early School Leaver program at the Technology Center of DuPage.
