He financed a new Dodge Neon with a $2000 rebate, for $12,851.77 @ 11.99 APR for 5 years. Through this deal, David only needed to put down $500 for a down payment. David called mom for the down payment, but his mother refused. David was able to withdraw the money with his debit card and purchased the car. A few days later, mom brought David back to inform management that David was under legal guardianship and that he had no legal authority to enter in the contract to buy the Neon.
But throughout the story I pick up little hints that this day was exactly what everybody needed: to get away from everything. At the end of the day everyone seems to be peaceful and calm. The father seems to be a single dad who has picked his children up for the weekend.

Finally, in 1968, when the first school changed, they quickly reverted back because it caused disruption of families, little or no academic benefit, and saved no money (year-round school calendar home page).
The Case of General Motors Just one month after Chrysler filed for bankruptcy, General Motors (GM) followed, earning the “distinction” as the fourth largest bankruptcy case in U.S. history. Even $19.4 billion in federal help was not enough to keep the trouble automaker out of bankruptcy court, and the government has further pledged another $30 billion to help the company during its reorganization. A “new GM” is expected to emerge out of bankruptcy that will revolve around a mere four brands, Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick, as well as a few of its overseas operations. In its wake, GM’s bankruptcy will have a major impact on a cross section of Americans. The move will result in the closure of numerous plants and dealerships, which means thousands

One of the reasons I think its not beneficial is because we have 9 months of school where we learn and read or anything else and only 2 months of summer vacations where we have fun and do whatever we want. The summer reading project is not only a waste of time for students, but a waste of time for teachers as well because they will have lots of grading and any student is able to receive information about the book from friends; even the internet contains information about the book.
