Some high schoolers opt for early graduation

In the Springfield school district alone, more than 100 high school seniors have applied for early graduation this year, with various reasons of why they want to graduate early, including getting a head-start on college.

Bly's comments were featured in a December 8, 2009, article in the State Journal-Register about early graduation.
