Who needs an education? These celebs are too cool for school and have made the world their teacher. They learn lessons through hands-on experience and they are examples of people who have ditched school to go after their dreams and have it all work out. Now, of course many people who drop out of school do not have such good luck, so we are in no way saying that young individuals should just drop everything and go after their wildest dreams. One: young people’s wildest dreams really are wild. Two: they change all the time. What they like now will be different in just a couple of months.

Yet this is our list of 20 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Dropped Out of School. They left the classroom behind so that they could pursue film or television or music or modeling. And hey, it all worked out! Mostly. Some of them went a little (or a lot) crazy, while others still said that they wished they had gotten their high school diploma. So do not get any ideas! Hard work and studying usually does pay off. These people are just some exceptions to the rule. Very successful exceptions! Enjoy reading all about it!

Yeah, Tracy Morgan dropped out of high school, but guess what? Yeah, that is right suckers, he is glad that he left school behind! After all, he is a super-successful celebrity now, so what is there to miss? Who cares about a diploma? He is so relieved that college was never part of his schtick. He said that if he had gone to college, he probably would be hating his job right about now. Wow, strong words there, Tracy Morgan. College would have been a crutch for him and he would not have pushed himself to be his absolute best.
