No 14 year old should be driving

That is dramatic.

It is just a way of life here. For many that is the only chance to actually go to school.

I don't blame BM at all. 14 seems awfully young to be driving a car. IMHO. It's been statically proven that teens are more likely to wreck or be killed in a car wreck.
The oranges of the island are like blazing fire
Amongst the emerald boughs
And the lemons are like the paleness of a lover
Who has spent the night crying.

My soul was ripped to shreds on 10/27/14.. I miss you!

Here it is totally normal. We dont have the same problems you do there. I havent heard of one kid dying at all since my kids were in school. There is also no interstate between our house and the school and anyone using this permit would be driving down "boring" country roads. Having to go to summer school isnt a reward. She is missing out on all her summer fun. Driving a boring drive to sit through school and come right back isnt really a reward

She had a cumulative final and studied all the wrong stuff and none of the right stuff. Of course she didnt know what was going to be on the actual test so she just picked what she thought would be the most important and studied for that. Her grade came out to be just below passing. She studied hard just not the right stuff. It wasnt like she was **** around not studying.

It's not something we would do. A 14 year old has no business driving IMO. A 17 year old took a curve coming off the interstate in her Mini Cooper here in March at 100 mph, killed her friend that was a passenger and put herself into ICU. She is being charged with Vehicluar Manslaughter. There are constantly accidents here with teens behind the wheel. My niece gets her license in September and it scares the crap out of me.. my oldest will get her learner's in 2.5 years and that scares me even though one of us will be in the car with her at all times.
If my kid failed and ended up in summer school, they would not be driving themselves... Driving is a privilege and not a right IMO. They would not be rewarded by driving. They would be stuck and having to repeat it the following year if we were unable to accomodate summer school. You screw around, you pay the price..you don't get handed keys to a 4,000 lb vehicle.

I don't believe that for a second. That no teen has died in your area from car wrecks in years.

It isnt a very big town. The last person who died was a 94 year old and that was nearly two years ago

I wouldn't allow my child to drive at 14. I would also make her repeat the grade. If she failed after going to school for 9/10 months....she's not going to magically learn in a few weeks what she didn't learn during the year

I think what youre doing makes sense. I mean yeah she gets to drive and thats cool and all but shes driving to summer school so I think that cancels out the cool factor.

Ok, I'm wth you on this. There is a HUGE difference between urban kids and kids raised in more rural areas.  She gets to drive to school.  No where else, no place fun, no passengers, no hanging out.  To school.  That's it.  Tell BM to either stick a sock in it, or figure out daily transport.

There would be no way my 14 year old would be driving.  Either we would work together to get her there and back or she would have to repeat the course.  A 14 year old is too young to drive.  Some 14 year olds here are in grade 8, there is no way that would be happening.

I don't think I'd be comfortable with it either. 14 is not mature and I think I'd just change my own schedule to work with her's or she'd be dropped off at school when we could take her and picked up when someone could. She'd have plenty of time at the school to study so she didn't fail it a second time. She'd have to be a little put out because it was her acts that took her to that place. If she'd passed her exams, she wouldn't have been in that mess.
if you don't think, you drown.

She screwed up in her first year of high school, and failed too many classes. You don't reward a screw up with a driver's license. She absolutely can ride her bike to and from summer school with out bike lanes.

14 is not nearly old enough, mature enough, or responsible enough to be behind the wheel of a 2,000-5,000 pound machine. I wouldn't be comfortable with that in any way, I don't care if everyone you know did it when you were her age.

In Nebraska, you can get a school permit for driving to and from school if you are 14 years, 2 months old and if you live in a rural area with a population of less than 5,000 people. In Iowa, you can get a school permit for driving to and from school if you are 14 years, 6 months and live far enough away from your school.

You may not agree with it, but their states do. These areas depend on these exceptions to lower the cost of educating their rural populations.

What about the OO's topic makes you think it is not her husband's choice to have his daughter attend summer school?
