I would.

What else would you do? Employment pre 16 is pretty limited and I’m not disciplined enough if left to my own devices.

I also wouldn’t get the chance to meet as many people or discuss such a broad range of options. You’d have to be incredibly privileged to have the resources to learn the same or more than you would in a school environment in a social setting.
Access to BBC Four on the iPlayer does not require privilege, nor does access to Wikipedia. Just drive to learn.

But then I used to bunk off school and watch World at War. Laurence Olivier, eat ya heart out.

No.

Hyperinflation and Albert Speer are really quite interesting.

There would have been times when I would not have attended. To avoid subjects I did not like or was not much good at. I am fairly sure other pupils would have done the same- for example those who hated playing sport.
