I don't have any guidance about how to keep kids from dropping out of school, but I do have a hopeful story.

My sister dropped out.
Eventually, she figured out that she needed education to make her employable and got her GED. She went on to get a Master's Certificate in Early Childhood Education (a certificate program, not a Master's degree) and is now considered a leader in her field.

There is also an exam you can take to get out of high school, although he seems old for that.

Best wishes for being a good influence on your nephew. It's so heart-wrenching to see people you love insist on learning life's lessons the hard way.
