I believe that school is not important. My proposal goes out to all the parents and government officials in Tallahassee who designed the school system. Millions of teenagers and kids spend 5 days a week attending school where they have to sit around in class, detesting those Mondays and wasting their time away. Of course there are going to be students who want learn and accelerate in school but there are going to be plenty of them who believe school isn’t necessary.

So that’s around $120,000 you could be abandoning by just going to high school. If you enter...
