"I'm not going to go to college, so I don't need good grades." ...If you ignore your high school education because you aren't going to get a college education, you're going to go into the world with only a middle school education, and that, my friend, is a scary thought. Amirite?

If you realize you’re in the process of being brainwashed, you’re 90% ahead of your fellow classmates. A college degree is pretty worthless these days but I believe it’s important to complete it because it shows you can complete it and that in itself goes a long way.

I’m not saying to not get an education. I’m just saying a lot of what is appearing to be education is actually indoctrination. It got so bad at one point in my education I was just handing in shlock that I thought my profs wanted to hear and I would always ace the course even though I felt what I was handing in was truly crap.

You would think after a few failed tests my teachers would suggest something more fitting... As long as these people have jobs i say good for them... But honestly most high school teachers suck anyway, i think i saved myself from brainwashing by not paying attention
