Jeez, doesn't anyone think to get their GED at the same time they drop out?

I don't know about the rest of the country, but in Florida, they changed the price of taking the GED from 50$ to something ridiculous like 200$ +.

Got kicked out half way through year 10.

Now I draw underage porn for the internet to a mass of adoring fans.

G.E.D.s are great documents. But, in keeping people out of work places it also works well.
The 'need' for educational papers was intended (and worked well for years) to keep minorities out of the work place.

I over heard at an H.R. (Human Resources office), "Well I'm sorry, It is good that you put in the effort to acquire the G.E.D. but not staying in school and getting a Real Diploma means you have problems with social adjustment. I'm sure you can find suitable employment elsewhere. Thank you for coming in. Goodbye."
I'm sure that was a real boost to the guy's day.

Chomsky explains the purpose of education. 1:30 applies to all you drop outs who ain't stupid.

I've had some problems at school, but I study at the best university in my country right now so it's still working out for me.

I dropped out during the year 11, f*cking stupid decision. I'm now studying carpentry so it could have turned out worse, still a foolish idea.

It will be fine, I dropped out like 3 years ago. Im gonna try to wash cars and move them around a dealership, just found out I could icon14.gif

I got kicked out of school for bad attendance, and generally being a little sh*t. I'm 18 now, I go college and I'm learning plumbing.

Never thought I'd say this but, I seriously miss school. Best few years of my life, everything is just so damn serious now.

I feel you. I hated school, but now I miss it. Not for the "education" I "received".. I should clarify .. I went to an alternative school for a while and I learned more than ever... I had to leave due to my family moving. When I went back to public school, it was hell. I met many friends that I still have. Although I really enjoyed public school as a means to meet new people, the education I received was terrible and totalitarian.


*EDIT* BTW I now have a job I love more than anything.

Dropped outta school @ 16. Over some dumb sh*t.
Then my coochie rate plummeted, so I decided go back to school finish. Learned a lot lessons about life on the streets, but streets ain't no place for a teenager.

I dropped out when I was 17 because high school had a bad atmosphere "omg you gotta get a 99.9 ATAR so you can get a good job and buy an SUV otherwise you'll be on the dole for the rest of your life and get pregnant and into heroin!!" I'm doing a university entrance course now, so the way I see it, I won't be too far behind my peers but I'll have spent my teen years drinking, doing drugs, hitting on girls and wreaking havoc instead of stressing about my results and crying myself to sleep because I think the girl who sits next to me in history will beat me by 0.1% of a mark.

A shockingly accurate summation of why I dropped out of school, sans the facetiousness.

Don't be such a GED downer, weasel.





I'm going to relay a really positive GED story to counter weasel's story.

I knew a guy who dropped out of school but (eventually) he did get his GED. He worked all sorts of sh*t jobs with the last one being a food waste trash man. Thanks to him having that GED I was able to get him a job working as a network tech. It was a foot in the door so-to-speak. He then was able to get all sorts of training through the job as well as a bunch of certifications. Now he is a well respected network admin/architect type of person with a solid job, solid benefits, and a solid pension.
