Comments from another site--

ame: Kelly's Education:
Comment:
Kelly was tutored after leaving public school. She got a GED. (As was
Beyonce, but no one's hatin' on her.) The diploma everyone keeps
refering to was given to her by the highschool she withdrew from. She
didn't "graduate" from "her highschool" but she did graduate.

Name: (sigh)
Comment:
I believe EUR reported on the fact that Kelly received an "honorary"
diploma from her high school, much like P. Diddy received an honorary
degree from Howard University after donating $500,000. The fact of the
mater is that Kelly didn't graduate on her own. At least Diddy
graduated high school and was accepted into a university. Again, Kelly
received an honorary high school diploma, she did not graduate and she
did not get her GED.

Name: T-Bird> (sigh)
Comment:
Right now your not the only one, but you were the one who kept jumping
on the fact that she only had a 9th grade education. At least the young
lady did go back to complete her education.

Name: (SIGH)
Comment:
She went back to get an honrary diploma, not an education. In case you
need a helpful hint, an honorary diploma is granted whether or not the
curriculum is completed. So she still has a 9th grade education, which
is completely shameful. Not the type of example I'd like for my
daughter/neice/sister to pay attention to.

Honestly, I do not think she graduated or received a GED because she was too busy focusing on her career.  In most interviews all they mention is that she attended the school of performing arts in Houston.  Nothing is ever said if and when she completed or received a diploma or her GED.  I think since she's suppose to be on this "status" and to admit she didn't receive her HS diploma would make her appear "less Beyonce-ish".  Perhaps they think it will ruin her image so they don't really bring her education into play.

Anywhoo, with or without a HS, she's doing the damn thang!

BTW, Jay-Z didn't finish high school....he's honest about it.

SO TRUE! I dont even remember what that is, and I haven't heard one mention of it since college algebra freshman year (unless ur in the math and science fields, half that crap is useless..unless you want to volunteer as a tutor....but you are so on point with your entire postClap

and besides, what does Bey need with a degree now? so she can't act that well and sometimes her communication skills aren't to par...she gets paid to entertain and she has that on lock...plus she is smart enough to have other revenue producing assets.
 
actually some jobs use college albegra, geometry and the like;  Engineering is one.  A lot of software we use on the daily baisis calculate the forumlas for you, but u still have to know the principals.  CAD software to name oneLOL

Umm Beyonce was home schooled, she got her hs diploma through that. Either way we definitely know chick hasn't been to college. I still love her though.

That is why we need to choose very wisely who our children choose to idolize.  I'd rather my daughter say I wanna be like Alisha Keys or Aaliyah who both graduated and excelled in school and use them as examples of individuals who excelled and reaped their benefits later in life, rahter than my daughter say I wanna be just like Beyonce and realizing that you can still find success without a High School diploma in the "traditional sense".  Beyone did not have what it takes to become as successful today if not for her parents.  Someone like that who cannot even understand questions and represent herself in a intelligent manner can doubtedly understand the contracts and like materoials that is takes to understand and go through with business negotiations.  beyonce had alot and I mean alot of help to get where she is.  I will say all that support definately gave her the confidence to do the damn thing in the industry.  She never has to worry about the business side of things with her parents there to back her up so she can concentrate all her time on doing the things that she loves the most and that is to entertain.
 
Business woman....Nay
 
Entertainer....yes

I disagree with that, I don't think your children should idolize or want to be like Beyonce, Alicia Keys or Aaliyah. Training starts at home! So its obviously something missing if they want to be like an entertainer/celebrity. If anything I think it's great that Beyonce includes her family in everything that she does, that just shows that she has strong family ties and that there is unity in that family-which is something that a lot of families lack. So what if her mom and dad help her, atleast we can assume that they aren't cheating her out of her money, would it be better if some industry people managed her career and she ended up owing her label? I seriously doubt any of these people and Alicia Keys included would be anywhere without accountants and lawyers to handle their business, paperwork, and checks. People assume Beyonce's uneducated, but chick is smart enough to keep her family around her and let them "help" her with things. Wouldn't it be hilarious if they were only involved in her projects but she controlled it all. I wouldn't doubt it. I see Bey everywhere making tons of dough, more than a lot of these so called "independent, free thinkers" in the industry. Point blank, none of these celebrities are doing anything on their own. Sure Alicia could be a good role model, but who knows what she's really like behind closed doors, same for the rest of them--again, training starts at home.

I for one am all about education. I graduated from high school with a full academic scholarship, and I am currently enrolled in a university majoring in Psychology. My parents always stressed to me the importance od education, and told me that in order to have a successful career, I must have a college degree. I used to believe that when I was younger, but not so much anymore. I think that its sad when people believe that in order to be successful in life, you must go to school for x amount of years. Some of my friends who I graduated with actually look down on some of the other people in our graduating class that didn't go to a 4 year college, and went to a 2 year college instead. Like having an associates degree isn't good enough. I don't know whether or not Beyonce graduated, but if she didn't, so what? Does that take away from her talent? Are people going to all of a sudden stop buying her albums cause she had the audacity not to care about what others thought of her and followed her own dreams instead. Well I guess that means every person that did graduate is the next president, and those who didn't are the homeless people we see holding signs on the side of the road.

I realize education is not everything but undervaluing intelligence is getting us nowhere as a group.(black people)  Depending on athletics isn't working, depending on some talent isn't working.  Not doing anything definantly isn't working.  Not everybody is going to be the next Micheal Jordan or Bey.  While we shouldn't judge people for not going to school, it doesn't hurt to take the route were you know you have a chance of making something of yourself.
