ileolai asked: people like Einstein and Bill Gates, who dropped out of school, did so because they didnt fit in/had learning disorders, not because they wanted to "fuck the establishment!" like the privileged white boy libertarians taking over the uncollege movement. Exceptional talent + exceptional circumstances helped them to succeed. Most people who drop out of school for those reasons just drown because there's few to no alternatives to college.
One of many reasons why there should be a lot more alternatives to college out there!!
But I don’t know if those folks are “taking over” the uncollege/skipping college (I feel the term uncollege has been really branded by one individual whom I’m not so fond of, so I’m leery of using that term personally) movement/community, since it seems in it’s recent (last few years) incarnation at least, that movement has always been a (mostly) white libertarian boys club! :-S
