American Idol songstress Fantasia Barrino is making the smart decision to return to school!
Wanting to set a good example for her 7-year-old daughter and 15-year-old brother, 'Tasia is planning on earning her degree after dropping out of high school in the 9th grade over a decade ago.
The former Idol winner explained further, "I've been talking about it for so long, I have a lot of young people who look up to me… It's something that I really need to do and that I want to do."
We're not sure if Fantasia Barrino has made herself out to be the ideal role model, but this is a step in the right direction.
We for sure wouldn't want to relive those awkward high school years!
