Should I drop out at 16?
ANSWER #4 of 7

I did not rate anyone but, saying that every drop out will wind up kicked out of their house by their parents and living on the street is completely wrong. many high school drop outs go on to lead successful lives, not living on the streets like a homeless person. dropping out of high school does not mean the loss of ambition. there are many reasons one could want to or be forced to drop out of school. I dropped out of high school, got my GED, got a job, and now am enrolled in college. sounds pretty ambitious to me.

Trust me, you do not have to go through life living in the "social norm" of going to school til your 18 then immediately go to college for four years then getting out of college and try to get some big job downtown on salary. even though public schools and the majority of people pound it into your head that you NEED to do these things or you will end up a hobo. that is simply not the case.

Drop out of school?? Or stay in??

ANSWER #5 of 7

I know you didn't come here for advice on whether you should stay in school or not. but as a high school dropout who is currently enrolled in college, I now think it would have been better off for me to finish high school. I ended up getting my GED anyways.(you should do this too if you drop out, it was one of the easiest things I have ever done plus it will make your parents happy and make it easier to find a job) Unless you are looking to work in a restaurant(or some other not very fun and low paying job) for the majority of your adult life I would finish high school and then take a crack at college. It beats working for 40 hours a week at a job you hate, school is good for the experience and in the long run will help you out.
