    programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.

In some cases, however, students are returning to an education that is not working for them or their families.
    Each student has an education situation unique to themselves. As it stands, our education system leaves some students behind. Our current system can lock students into a school that does not match up with the type of education they want or need.
