Why would getting out of school help someone? Some people can't go to school because of money but some can. If you make an income, without going to school, it probably an income that is very low. And how would getting out of school increase your income? And if you don't have proper education, it is going to be very hard to change what you want to do when you grow up. Since mandatory schooling is only up to high school in most areas, if you don't graduate high school, it is hard to do what you want to do.
So I believe that people should have mandatory schooling.
More time = More hours at work = more money.
Except in my case. More time = more work on my game = more sales.
And a lot of the times, I self-teach. So school doesn't really do much except allows the bullies to bully me.
What I see is that you are working on a game of some sort and selling them. Which can be a great job for you. I am also suspecting that you don't know about the world yet. If you do not have proper education, you are going to have trouble when you grow up. If you don't like this job anymore, you won't be able to switch to a different job when you grow up. Also, even though you will like this job forever, you never know if that job will exist in the future a lot. Some of the jobs that we had several decades ago we don't have now. If this happens to your job, then you won't be able to survive when your a grown up.
If you are working on a game, this would be much more of a problem to you. Since computer technology is advancing so fast, your computer skills or programming skills will not be much of a use to you if you did not have proper education when you are old or older.
And also, I not saying school should be removed, I'm saying that school should allow you to just go out when you want, none of this "year 10 or higher" crap.
That is why I think mandatory schooling is necessary.
But if we don't, then we're screwed, even if we get a large income?
Uhm, ever heard of Steve Jobs?
And you have just proven yourself wrong. Steve Jobs dropped out of college not high school. College is not required in the law in the United States. It is only mandatory to go to school until about 17 years old. So Steve Jobs did take mandatory schooling which help him tremendously when he was older. If he hadn't even taken middle school, then I bet he wouldn't have been successful. I think I heard of Steve Jobs more than you.
People who are successful and drop out of school is only a small percentage of people. It is less than 1% of the people that dropped out of school. This is very rare so I strongly believe that mandatory schooling is necessary.
Also, there are bullies at the school, and they go after me and me only. So you can see why I want out of school more.
