21. Giving up the full time job is the right answer

There's no reason for being too tired to go to school. It isn't as though she's supporting herself...oops...

A reporter from Houston’s KHOU relayed to the judge that Tran is working to support an older brother who attends Texas A&M University and a younger sister. Her parents divorced “out of the blue” last year and both moved away, her mother to Georgia, leaving the high schooler on her own in Willis. She is working part time at a wedding venue and full time at a dry cleaning business just to stay afloat.

Tran's parents are the ones who should be in jail -- are the authorities at least TRYING to track them down for child abandonment? At the very least, the older brother should put off college and work full time until she finishes high school. Tran and her younger sister should be should getting public aid, even if it means foster care.
