I am not trying to encourage anyone to quit school, but I am showing you that an education isn’t an absolute necessity to have a successful life. You can also increase your brainpower without going to school. There are many ways that you can succeed and lots of ways to educate yourself. What about Albert Einstein?

Some do question her level of talent, but she has managed achievements in her life. And what she lacks in talent, she definitely makes up for withself confidence.She dropped out of an upscale Manhattan school during her junior year. She did get her GED though. Does that explain her spelling mistakes in her confiscated emails?


Avril Lavigne

She is very talented, to say the least. It has been reported that she dropped out of eleventh grade after she received her recording contract. Duringan interview with Barbara Walters, she suggested she should go back to school. Avril replied “Um, yeah, no that’s okay.” She did get her GED.


Britney Spears

This is another singer that dropped out of school in order to pursue her musical career. It is unclear if she earned her GED or not. Would she have avoided some poor lifestyle choices if she continued with her education?


Lindsay Lohan

Really, it does not surprise me that Lindsay Lohan dropped out of high school in eleventh grade. Why did she leave before graduation? I quote “Life is full of risks anyway, why not take them.” Yes, she sure did take risks in her own life.


Christina Aguilera

Born in December of 1980, she was destined for fame…and to drop out of school. Early in High School, her mother had to pull her out of school because the other childrenwere jealousof her fame.

There you have it! Proof that education isn’t always needed in order to become successful in life. Although, I admit, it may make success in life easier. But remember, money does not buy everything. Look at my other blog on celebrities with anxiety…some of those dropped out of school too! So, who here dropped out of school? We’re not here to judge you…

i see nothing wrong with dropping out of school to follow your dreams, esspecialy if you get your GED afterwards.

I don't like how Christina and Brittany's parents only thought about making money. One can't take for granted that everything will work out. At least, Will Smith finished high school. If I had been, accepted at MIT, like Will, I would have gone there first. His parents must to have raised Cain. On the other hand, how would things have gone? Would "Parents Just Don't Understand " have been his? Would "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air materializedd?

I would honestly never trade my education for fame like that. I would also much rather look up to celebs that have actually graduated from college like Natalie Portman who received a major in psychology from Harvard or Matt Damon who also attended Harvard. education is supposed to be for your own personal growth (awareness, enlightenment, etc) and not for money

I think Jim Carey was too funny x)

education actually enlights our soul to help us to find our dream and the road to achieve what we are really looking for. if you can find it before completion of education it means you are already ahead of others. personally i would sure love to know the famous with proper education. As for the post-thank God they dropped out early otherwise they could be late or absent from our celebrity list!

WHYY!!! tho,i think  it is fantastical ,I love highschool it's my first year 2015 xD...
