    Is the difference their folks' bank accounts?
    Oh captain, I know this is something you'll just have to figure out in time, but if it helps, I work with several people with "top quality" educations who are utterly useless...

    I'm not really in the mood for that, but otherwise I would go off on a rant about how that makes no sense. Age=Driving experience? I'll just leave it at that.

    ...and that is all you have to say.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    You know why?

    That is done to them, misusing their school years or whatever the reason.

    Exacting how are you supposed to "use" them, since you seem to know everything...
    Of course, your generation always does

    We do not know everything that is why we need education.

    There may be a slight language/cultural barrier? High school in the states is a generalized name for the last few years of standard [not college] education. Mine was 10-12th grade.

    It's usually something like:

    1st - 5th Elementary School
    6th - 9th Middle School
    10th - 12th High School

    It's sort of an artificial construct, mainly to load balance the facilities and to attempt to isolate maturity levels.

    (Apologies in advance if that's a rehash)

    I agree, but the poster did say high school - while being a complete slacker will probably prevent you from entering Harvard as a Freshman, *some* level of effort covers you for a pretty wide rang of decent-to-good schools.

    A formal education has a good number of perks. I'd say my wife has also had an amazing professional career, and she's a CMU grad.

    For reference, both myself and one of my previous biz partners had so-so high school/college performance, but both of us have done exceptionally well professionally.

    I would say if I were hedging my bets, more [formal] education is likely better than less!

    Yes, cultural barrier appearance was meant.

    I am doing education currently and plan on further education, just involving the states

    You need to talk to the NCIPC, the CDC and the IIHS - their research studies would suggest otherwise.

    A small result from a 2006 IIHS study [underlined emphasis added by me]:

    The risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16- to 19-year-olds than among any other age group. In fact, per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are four times more likely than older drivers to crash (IIHS 2006).
