Kristen Stewart started acting at age eight. She claims that when she was younger, her teachers “failed” to support her while she found herself having to miss classes. The ‘Twilight’ star ultimatly decided to drop out of mainstream education in seventh grade. She claims that she felt forced into having to make the switch to homeschooling because her teachers refused to help her catch up with her work.
She told Britain GQ, “School became genuinely uncomfortable. I was feeling a little self-conscious about the acting thing with my peers, but also my teachers became a problem. They didn’t want to do the extra work or put packages together so I could keep up while away.”
“They failed me. My teachers failed me. Not one, but all of them. I’m always slightly ashamed in a way, about what I do. I’m slightly embarrassed as I had such serious ambitions when I was younger, I just never imagined that I would ever have a reason not go to school. But then this happened.”
