Should teens have a say in the high schools they attend?

Yes, if they're involved in their education, as another wrote they will be more invested. My child chose to apply to a local charter. They have a strong sense of community and direct involvement in educational,social & financial aspects of their life

YES!! The more invested they are in the decision making process the more it becomes "their school" and they can take ownership of their accademic success.

Yes, a Performing Arts student should not be made to attend a STEM school because their parents feel it's a better opportunity. Teens should have some input as long as it's justifiable and not just because their friends are there too.

Generally, the school they attend should be determined by where they live. IF there is room in other schools, then they should have the opportunity to choose, but if there is no room priority must go to those who live nearby.

Absolutely, because kids are an integral part of their own success. If they are forced into uncomfortable situations they shut down. If they explore their interestes..they blossom. Love not conformity.

Absolutely, because a lot of them are either too preoccupied with their social lives with friends, family, classmates, etc., or don't have sufficient support, education, or involvement.
