Keith Urban Says He Was 'Hopeless At School'

Though he is quite the success today, Keith Urban admits that he wasn't as successful when it came to school.

"I quit school at 15!" he tells the Boot. "I was hopeless at school. I was out. I would've left sooner if I could, but you've gotta legally stay 'til you're 15."

Yet, even though he quit school at a young age, Urban is quick to point out that he is an advocate of staying in school.

"Look, I'm always very careful to not have parents think I support kids leaving school at a young age, 'cause I don't necessarily," he adds. "All I can speak is my own experience is that I - the biggest education I got was when I hit the road and got life's education. That was everything school didn't have to teach me at the time."
