“I never knew I could drop out of school until the ‘Be cool, stay in school’ guy gave a speech”

"Be cool—stay in school” is an education slogan that has been trademarked with a first use of 2016. Some people, however, didn’t know that not going to school was a legal option. A quotation was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on August 26, 2017:

“I didn’t even know I could drop out of school until the “Be cool, stay in school” guy gave a speech at my school.”
