What are your thoughts? Why?
Too a point yes. Now days you need to go to collage and such and to do that you have to have descent grades, maybe not straight A's but good.
Not necessarily. Dh is a good example. He didn't do very well in school b/c he was bored; he cut a lot and ended up w/ a GED. He later earned an associate's in business, and has worked his way up in the USPS from mail handler to middle management.
No. My husband did horrible in school during his K-12 years but by college he was a straight A student. He is successful now!
No, it's one indicator, but not necessarily the best. Some people are highly successful in non-academic fields.
Nope, I hated school. I slacked off to no end and certainly didn't work up to my potential. I now have a good job that quite a few people would kill for.
no i cant say that it does the guy that owns vergin airlins and is making the new space ships for people in space never even finished school.....i think that so called school should stop at 13 and the education should be switched to a trade.....my social studies and history classes have done nothing for me and if i could have persued phycology and the arts i may be in a diffrent place in my life.
No, its not an indicator but if someone works really hard in school to do well, it probably says a lot about their work ethic which can take you far. Self esteem is tied in there too, I think.
