The Dues We Pay: Inside the Class of 2020 By Savannah (Explicit Language)

Updated: Aug 14


(Pictured above: Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School sent a message explaining to students that they will not be receiving any refunds of their senior dues.)


Excuse my language ahead of time.


Hell yeah I have concerns, questions, problems, and a whole lot of opinion. THIS RIGHT HERE IS NOT FAIR! and I cannot, nor will, I sit back and not be heard. This right here is the breaking point for me. For 4 years at co-op I have been told multiple times to make sure I pay my class dues so I can get my cap and gown, so they can give us a prom, so we can afford a senior breakfast, so we can afford to go on our senior trip. Contributed to bake sales and fundraisers around co-op to what? RECEIVE A FULL SENIOR EXPERIENCE not some half ass experience. The classes before us got to have the experience and so will the classes after us.


I find it absolutely fucking ridiculous. Senior year is supposed to be a special year for us. The last time to show who you are and leave knowing you shined as bright as you could, leaving your mark. IF I'M NOT BEING GIVEN THE FULL FUCKING EXPERIENCE I SHOULD AT LEAST GET SOME OF MY DAMN MONEY BACK. I could use that money to put towards paying my $350 college deposit. I live with my grandmother she don't work and is my main provider WE LIVE OFF THE STATE,MONEY ISN'T AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE! So sitting here and telling me that I won't be refunded is absolutely insane. YOU ARE INSANE IF YOU THINK IM GONNA JUST ACCEPT WHAT I'VE BEEN GIVEN. I WILL BE HEARD! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS AND UNFAIR.


I know there are people saying "hEy aT LeASt YoU gEt tO WaLk aNd gRaduAte." That means nothing without the full experience. My money didn't just go towards what's listed above and you can't tell me otherwise because if I ask any class before us, they would prove my point. My hard earned cash went towards prom, a senior trip, a senior breakfast, and more senior activities! SO DON'T SIT HERE AND BULLSHIT ME ABOUT WHAT DUES COVER! WE DESERVE SOME OF THAT SHIT BACK, PERIOD! How are you gonna still provide the items listed to the students who didn't pay their dues, huh? Does that sound fair?? The students who paid and did what they were supposed to our money helps the irresponsible students who just refused to pay get rewarded! You can't tell me that there isn't anything you can do. I'm tired hearing we have to wait for further instruction.


The future depends on us so GET THE FUCK UP AND SUPPORT WHAT YOU CLEARLY SEE IS WRONG. HELP OUR VOICES BE HEARD, SPEAK UP AND FIGHT FOR THE CLASS OF 2020!
