Hey, been a while since I posted, hasn't it? Let me put you guys in context: There's this person at my High School who has been in a severe depression (confirmed by doctor/psy) for a few months. It has obviously interfered with their school work. From what I was told, that person did not give in a few assignments and grades dropped a lot (still passes, but barely) and he's been missing a lot of classes, either due to doctor appointment or due to not feeling well. Direction is aware of the depression, but two months ago told him to get his shit straight or he would be kicked out. Things been going good for a few weeks, during which time the student gave in his late assignments and stopped missing school completely. Grades even got up a little. But last week there was a slip-up and he missed school one day, didn't give a music assignment and didn't go to a detention. Now the School Board is threatening with expulsion and is reviewing the case with the Director. Here's were I come in: As an influential part of the Student Parliament, I am able to start a vote for his expulsion among the Parliament. If they decide they want him to stay, it could very well save the student and let him finish the last month of school here. I'm just wondering if I should. Does depression cause someone to act like this and to seemingly not give a damn about anything?
