At least in the United States, you need a high school diploma to do pretty much anything. If you drop out and get a GED or the equivalent, then you might be okay although these days that is losing its value as well.0
It would be upbto the individual. But due to the importance for our society and the ability to function in it, is a reason for it being so important.0
Bad choice. You should at least graduate highschool... at least that.0
Survival comes first, but only if you can tell the difference between survival and extremely hard work. After survival comes ensuring future survival, and because we live in capitalism, the best way to ensure future survival is planning/actions now to ensure capital later. As having a HS/GED diploma is necessary for above-minimum wage paying employment it is only logical to assume that apart from actually being necessary for survival, dropping out of high-school would only doom your future to failure.0
In Finland you can stop after Primary School. It's the same as stopping after Junior High in the States.0
You'll pretty much have no future0

I don’t think it’s generally a great idea. Of course there are some highly successful people that dropped out of high school but they’re successful because they had the drive to continue to better themselves and overcome many obstacles. Most people don’t have this drive and they drop out thinking that taking another route will be easy.0
You need a high school diploma to get a mediocre job.1
In high school I had a terrible time. I wanted to drop out but I knew my future would be at stake. Instead of dropping out, I figured out that there is an alternative way to continue high school and get my diploma. I entered an independent study program and I met a teacher privately once a week and they gave taught me then gave me work to do throughout the week and I enjoyed this much more than actually going to a public school everyday.
I think that people who want to completely dropout are lazy and obviously don’t care about their future. Sometimes you just have to push through it because life is not easy.0
