Successful Government School Drop Outs

The NEA says if you don't stay in school that you won't succeed..you'll probably end up in jail !
Hogwash!

Check out this list of accomplished people - I guarantee you'll be surprised.

Actually there are three lists here:

- High School and Elementary School Dropouts

- Dropped Out, But Later Received High-School Diploma Equivalency Status
(months, years, or decades later: equivalency diploma, honorary diploma, admission to a college or university, or other schooling or training of high merit)

- Dropped Out of High School, Joined Military, & Eventually Received Diploma Equivalency Status

Information Sources: Current Biography Yearbook editions 1959-2004, biographies, autobiographies, interviews, news stories.

I am not surprised at all. High school has not been a measure of intelligence or aptitude for a long time. In fact, if anything, I could see it and many colleges just being a hindrance.
