The Most Successful Dropouts: Is the School Really Important? | Opinion.


12 October 2021

One thing about school is that it is an important took in life. Some people find the school overrated and opt to drop out to pursue their careers in music or look for jobs. What makes school much more important is that most jobs are professional. The only jobs available currently are those for the working class and they pay less. Recently the former public protector Thuli Madonsela argued that jobs don't create equality and end poverty.

"I don't even think that jobs end poverty, because employers domestic worker is my domestic worker and me giving her domestic does not create equality for her", she said.

She further added that she disagrees with the notion that she is not suggesting that they don't make a difference but she suggests that we get that out of the box. The jobs she is speaking about are the underpaid jobs mostly available to the working class. The jobs that pay well do of course make a difference and enable people to even create more jobs.

However, some people made it with no matric and no higher education qualifications. These people mostly did it through their talent. Below is a few icons who are currently millionaires with no matric or qualifications.

1. Cassper Nyovest.

2. Prince Kaybee.
