A person who drops out of school.
This can refer to college, university, or highschool.

Most people think that dropping out of school is bad. This is a very common misconception. Dropping out of school is only bad if you want to get a JOB. If you dont want to get a job, and have other ambitions besides a job, then dropping out is actually a pretty smart thing to do since you can stop wasting time going to school.

Generally, there are two types of dropouts.
Type #1 is the dropout with no ambitions whatsoever
Type #2 is the dropout who wants to be or do something

An example of #1 can be a 35-year-old working at McDonalds as a Janitor

An example of #2 can be Tupac Shakur

Jack lived with his mom and little sister. His mom was a very immature parent and went out and got drunk every night and would sometimes never even come home. This forced Jack to get little Sally ready for Kindergarden everyday, forcing him to constantly be late for school until he eventually had no choice but to become a drop-out to care for Sally.

Hannah, on the other hand, got a job at Pizza Hutt and felt like she was making some massive "dough" so she dropped out of high school to just work and get more money, unaware that without a diploma, Pizza Hutt's where she's gonna stay forever.
