I understand and agree with what you were trying to say. ... but(sorry for the rant in advance)

The only thing you need to learn is how to read and write.... Uh MATHS!!! 2+2=4, 3.14pi r squared. Area Volume and other such things! And I mean real math not common core BS. Want to balance your check book? Be an architect? Do your taxes? Figure out how many pounds of grain to feed to a cow to make it gain weight to grow but not so much that it gets fat and sick? The price of that cow when you sell it Weight being X price per lb being Y = Amount of $ you made or lost raising it?? MATH!!!!!! I agree school is crap these days but as an autodidact myself I cannot begin to stress the importance of math.

Again Sorry for the rant.
Nice animation bit cluttered but the clutter kinda worked for this type of presentation, and good voice work!

Serious, persuasive animations aren't unknown on NG - we had a guy do a bit on Universal Income, I remember - but this one's subpar. It doesn't seem like you've put a lot of thought into your arguments, or a lot of time into your animation. Did you draw each bit of clip art in the collage - the dad yelling at the kid, the blackboard, the drawing hand? It doesn't look that way, but I apologize if I'm wrong.

That's right been out of the school for 10 years now and don't miss it since.

Fine presentation. You parodied that advertisements/draw my life episodes perfectly :) I personally think you overused the profanity a little, but that's probably just down to personal tastes.

How I feel about the topic... In Florida, every citizen's legally obligated to complete grade schooling up until the age of 16, then which it's up to the consent of both the child and the parent/guardian. I agree with this system. It follows your philosophy to a point, you do need to learn to read, write, count, and critically think. After my sophomore year in high school, the only useful things I was taught was that Edgar Allan Poe was a great storyteller, and how to set-up a bank account and what the different kinds of investment are... this was called "Advanced Algebra w/ Financial Applications".

Good show overall. College or University only makes sense for those seeking a particular profession.
