Should one be forced to attend school? It shouldn't be the governements decision, or our parents decision, it should be everyones decision. You can still be an extremely intelligent person without going to school. I "dropped out" to get my GED and I plan on moving to New York to attend a music school to become a music producer. I've been saving up money to do that for quite a while now. Schools offer many opportunities, but the fact of the matter is that many people don't need a high school diploma to do what they will be doing for a living. I would rather do what I'm doing now, learning things everyday, teaching myself things everyday, to be good at what I will be doing in the future, not wasting my time on stuff I will never use. If a person wants to goto school that's fine, but it's not for everyone, and we shouldn't be forced, it should be a choice.
