Dropped school when i was 18 (final year) , now 21, studying on "evening courses" for an electronic degree . ( 3 years - 5 days a week - 18:00 to 21:30). After that i can work or get in uni for a master in industrial engineering. Also eurofag so sorry for english
>>16802678 I had anxiety issues all throughout school. I wasn't able to focus in that kind of environment. I had always felt that everyone was staring at me. I'd even considered that everyone could read my thoughts; more, I'd felt I was loudly projecting them. I was eventually kicked out for never doing my work. I had a group of friends though, and I wasn't a complete outcast. I had kept my anxiety under-wraps the best I could. I ended up getting a GED. I don't know what hope I have for the future.
>>16804429 >I've never seen a situation where there was a difference between a GED and a highschool diploma By law, there isn't supposed to be one. Practice falls short of theory at times, as always, but on the whole this one is fairly consistently upheld.
Generally, dropping out of high school to get your GED is still not a good idea. I've seen a few extreme cases where it really was better than the alternative: But they were, among other things, all cases where the person actually would have preferred to have stayed in high school; they were forced out by extraordinary circumstances, rather than leaving by choice.
>>16802678 Depends on your age. Most states and foreign countries require you to attend (or, in some cases, your parents can be jailed) up to some age - usually 16. After that you are free to make as many stupid mistakes as you wish.
>>16802678 You can skip school entirely and just pay the secretary of a school to print and legalize a diploma for you. Obviously it costs a lot but you are paying for something you could have gotten for free over sacrificing your time.
I dropped out of school and got an apprenticeship the same week, started on $8.30 but i'm on $38 an hour now, slowly working my way up I can't really encourage it though i guess, it still sucks and i have to work fulltime at a job i hate but i guess at least i didn't waste my time or money in a worthless degree. if you have the motivation to go and do stuff with that then go ahead, but i'm the laziest fucker ever.
>>16802683 Errr. I dropped out after grade 10 and started a full time apprenticeship. Now at 24 I don't even have to work I own 6 homes and 2 apartments. I just live off my returns. I don't know any one else who finished school who is a well off as I am.
>be the weirdo loser that everyone knows for some reason >a prime target for bullying >teachers would sometimes join in mocking me, and would refuse to stop other students when they would taunt me >became afraid to go to school because it was hellish, even walking down the halls between periods wasn't safe >attendance dropped, develop social anxiety really bad >at the end of year 11 have only 2 real friends, more enemies than I could feasibly count >the decision to drop out came when a teacher refused to help me with a project because "you won't finish it anyway" >decide that if the students are outwardly hostile to me, if the teachers are willfully negligent, and no one was willing to help me I would just stop going >its been 8 years since I dropped out >it was a terrible decision because now I can't get a job >still have awful social anxiety, being in a group of more than 5 people gives me a panic attack and I shut down >trying to get autismbux because nobody wants to hire an awkward loser with no formal education
Don't drop out, kids. Even if the whole world is against you don't make the same mistake I did and let them win.
