Yesterday, Beyonce was spotted by the photogs,  notebook in hand, heading into New York’s Alternative Education Complex, which offers continuing education courses for adults. Although many speculated if she was finishing up her G.E.D. (she already has a HS diploma), others wondered if this might mean the singer has decided to polish up her resume with a few education courses.

While it’s unknown why she was there–she could have been speaking to students or the staff about her hubby’s Shawn Carter Foundation–the fact that Beyonce may be thinking about continuing her education could potentially be a very big deal.

Like so many others in our country, Bey didn’t go to college. Of course, she opted-out because of her career, but I’m sure some of her fans chose to skip college, or even high school, because they just weren’t motivated.

Keeping young people in school is one of the main focuses of our nation (or should be). Imagine what kind of influence Beyonce could wield over those thinking about dropping out and pursing other things. If she became an advocate for staying in school I’m sure she could change a few minds and perhaps make school actually cool again.

What do you think?

    If she has a high school diploma, why would she try to obtain a GED as well?

    For some reason, I have a strong sense of doubt that she would even have time to do any studies.

    Well, if she is going back to school good for her. Go matriculate, Bey! I like those leggings by the way.

    Aww, that’s so sweet, Bey is finally learning to read. You go, Beyonce!

    The GED is for people who don’t have a high school diploma. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that she didn’t graduate high school, but I could be wrong. Either way, I think it would be beyond awesome for someone with her high profile to return to school. We have a drop out crisis in this country with drop out rates of higher than 50% in some areas. A lot of young girls admire and try to emulate her, so this could only be a good thing. Good on her for making the (alleged) effort.

    Ha! You’re funny.
