Lost Highschoolers

"Back to basics: why does high school fail so many?" has various stories on those who failed to graduate and rattles off stats on how bad off one is if one chooses to not finish high school. I don't know how accurate that is, and whether it is all that meaningful. Diploma or degree doesn't define one's ability to earn income. Yes it's harder to "get a job" but if one is to start a business, degrees don't matter: the will to meet needs is the key to being successful, I believe.

At least with a business owner, you are meeting real needs. As an employee, you're jumping hoops to keep your supervisors happy not any real needs.
