Top 10 Reasons to Drop Out of School

Warning: While all statistics and trends are accurate, approximately 44% of this post is not true. We trust you to make that distinction.

The Top Ten

1 My Band is About to Hit it Big

It's hard to get a real and formal education if a record company actually signs you and your band and you go on tour; it's happened before.

I bet you guys are good. Why not get a degree while you're on the road? It's never a bad idea to have a backup plan in case the Trash Storm doesn't get a record deal anytime soon.

That would be a cool way to not have to go to school!

2 To Stay Closer to Mom and Dad

What are Mom and Dad going to put in the basement if you leave? I'm sure they'll get a treadmill to fill up the space.

3 I Won The Lottery

I WON THE LOTTERY! people may think I have money I don't need a job or an education

This is a good reason to drop out... Not that I would. Why is halo at the top nobody even likes that game its for noobs and nerds that have noting to do with their life. Play Call of Duty its for real men. - gamer123

4 I've Already Started my Own Company
5 I Need to Beat WoW / Halo / Rock Band

These games provide hours, perhaps days, of fun and destruction. Maybe you could be one of those people who tests video games. That would be awesome.

With gamers like me, I could complete it in a week - SirSkeletorThe3rd

6 I'm Too Cool for School

Yes, and you won't be cool when you have no money and live on the streets... All because you thought your "Screaming Death Monkeys With Maces" band was going to hit it big. I'll pass on that.

I'm too cool to deal with my teachers. Plus, I'm above the law. Haha!

I'm too cool to have friends, but I don't complain do I - ProPanda

Personally, school life is cooler than thug life. - MChkflaguard_Yt

7 I Want to Be a Bum

I've always lived in a box under a bridge. It's pretty fun. You can talk to other bums, pigeons, boxes, crazy people in cars, aliens. It's great spotting aliens under the bridge - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I love being a bum on the streets, scavenge out food from the trashcans and make a living off the money people give to me so that I can buy signs and drugs.

It's so cool! You live under a highway and you have no money and grow a beard! You take drugs and talk to the dead frog all the time! ITS AMAZING! sarcasm. - Tacocheese

8 Money is Overrated

But it sure is necessary. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, high school graduates make $16,000 less annually than those with bachelor's degrees. You probably wouldn't be interested in that, though.

9 School is Taking Over My Social Life

I AGREE! I've had all my boyfriend breakups at school... no I'm so freakin lonely!

LOVE IT! Laugh out loud!

ABSOLUTELY school may hurt your social life

We know that sometimes it's hard to imagine your school experience boosting your social life, but it can! Go to class --> meet new people. It's almost like magic!

10 Nobody Cares About Degrees

Nobody cares about degrees anymore. Your future is completely dependent on experience. I don't need a piece of paper to tell people I know what I'm doing.

*Remember one basic rule: What others say about you is more important than what you say about yourself.

The Newcomers

? The Things They Teach Us are Not Useful We Need to Know How to Do Taxes, Buy a House/Car, the Basics of Math and Everything, We Don’t Need to Know the Radius of a Circle or the Volume of a Cone.

The Contenders

11 My Dad Never Graduated from College and He's Fine

The job market is a lot different than it was when your dad was your age. Most employers now screen applicant according to education. You want to make sure you have a degree to get you in the door.

12 Independence is Overrated

Has your car ever broken down? Has your computer ever crashed? Have you ever wanted to make your own website? What if you had a degree that allowed you to do that for yourself and other people and you actually got paid? Before you know it, you're moving out of Mom and Dad's and the treadmill is moving in.

13 Too Much Homework

Yes! I'm in 4th grade and my mom said: " when I was in fourth grade homework was way harder." It's still hard now!

No, worry about high school and enjoy 4th grade while it lasts.

14 Lazy

Don't give a crap about school.

15 I Can't Stand The Kids In My Classes

That would be the only reason why I would even consider dropping out. The kids at my school are crazy... - MusicalPony

16 School is Worthless

It dumb

17 It's All a Scam

Pretty much, they want cram all of this educational stuff into your head within 6 or 7 hours, just so they can make thousands of dollars off of your parents.

18 Schools Not for Me

I've always hated school more than anything. I'm 14 and it's my freshmen year. I will do anything to drop out, I have dumb reasons for dropping out. I have sever depression, I'm failing almost all my classes, and I can't keep up with the work. I haven't done even one page of work this year and its almost November. The only reason why I don't do my work is because I just don't care.

Wish I had no school so I can do some things I like

School's not for you? Oh please.

I've always hated school more than anything.My principle and vice principale suck and I hate all the kids in my class. I've always hated school since kindergarten.

Like in all reality, we've all thought about this. Even if they're payin you to put you clothes on, still making bank.

27 I Must Play Call of Duty All the Time

This Isn't a Valid reason to drop out of school. This must be removed from this list. - Animefan12

A Call of Duty fanboy added this. - MChkflaguard_Yt

28 I'm Too Busy Playing Guitar Hero
29 I Can't Learn the Skills I Need for My Business in College

I always wanted to be independent of a 9-5 job. So I do everything to build a business. Although the time needed for college really blocks me. So why not drop out and learn on my own?

30 Family Problems
31 The Economy Won't Get Me Anywhere Anyway.

We are living in a world with so much social, political and ECONOMICAL instability to the extent that everything you invest in - education included, does not gaurantee you success. And due to unscrupulous economic activities by a priveledged few some people are making it without anything, its all about who you know and not how much you know.
