Two years ago, Latishia Barksdale dropped out of high school at age 17 and faced an uncertain future.Before quitting, Barksdale was failing miserably in math and science. She couldn’t get the extra help she needed and was too embarrassed to ask questions because she felt they were stupid.   She tried her luck in an adult education class, but says she was surrounded by “students who didn’t want to learn.”   When that endeavour failed, Barksdale wasn’t sure what she would do with her life. But her fortunes changed after a youth worker in Little Burgundy told her about a new education model called “distance learning” – a program giving Barksdale an opportunity to obtain her high school diploma without having to set foot inside a traditional classroom.
