Why dropping out in Grade 5 can be the best education - The Globe and Mail

Why dropping out in Grade 5 can be the best education - The Globe and Mail:

"Dale J. Stephens dropped out of school in Grade 5 and educated himself with the help of college professors and teachers in his small town of Winters, Calif. He did end up enrolling in college, but dropped out of that too: Formal education could not measure up to the learning experiences he’d had on his own. With Hacking your Education, a new book published this month, Stephens, who is now 21, is setting out to teach other students who are considering university how to do better without."
