Elementary school and high school to an extent are important. Unless if you plan on being some kind of chemical engineer or something with a high education, I don't think it's that important. I mean, most millionaires have an 8th grade education anyway. My brother in law, who's a mechanic, dropped out of high school in 9th grade and he makes almost twice as much as a school teacher. I would say that education's important, so long as you have a job to support yourself.
