Luckily I only have 5 months left. I’m not saying that you should drop out, or that your teacher is wrong about your abilities or that bad grades equal genius. I’m saying – there are many assumptions about our education system that remain unquestioned and taken as fact. Look at the correlation between income and education. At $5,000/month – yes. Millionaires and education… slight correlation. Billionaires and education – zero correlation. Physicists who failed their high school physics and singers who were banned from middle-school choirs.
To hell with traditional schooling.
