A brave choice

Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this, as it’s a brave yet heartbreaking story of a young boy who is still dealing with the repercussions of not only his school’s decision, but his grandfather’s death as well.

Josh Palfrey and his father took time away from their school and work to travel from the UK to Alaska to spend time with their dying grandfather, who was fighting cancer and was told he didn’t have much time left.

When they got back home, Josh was told he no longer had a place at his school because they expelled him…

Josh Palfrey skipped school for 6 weeks to spend time with his dying grandfather instead.

Did the school make the right decision?
