Mark Wahlberg aims to graduate high school
The actor tells People, "I want [my children] to get a great education and do those things I never did. I will have that GED before my kids are old enough to know."
The 40-year-old Wahlberg dropped out of school as a 13-year-old. After that, he experienced a number of troubled years. As a 16-year-old, he beat a Vietnamese man with stick, blinding the man in one eye. For that Wahlberg was convicted of assault. Wahlberg also struggled with cocaine addiction.
But now with four children, Wahlberg appears to be ready to set an example as he looks toward getting his degree.
"I actually looked at the test online (recently)," he says.
