My parents told me that this year, if I don’t get all A and B grades, they will send me to Montana to homeschool with my grandparents. This seems like a better option, but it’s not. My grandparents are very authoritarian and homophobic. I would like to self-direct my education and have presented several options to my parents, but they refuse to take me seriously.
If I drop out of high school, they’ll kick me out of the house, which would be problematic because even if I could support myself (I make 800$ a month but probably cannot live on my own) nobody would rent to me.
