Chris Rock has joked that GED stands for Good Enough Diploma and he should know. Growing up, the “Top 5” star was bused to predominantly white schools where he would be a victim of bullying. His parents pulled him out of James Madison High School once the bullying got worse. Rock ended up dropping out of high school at the age of 17 to pursue a career in comedy. Luckily, it worked out for him but the Brooklyn native later received his GED.
