Myth #1- High school diplomas and GED are the same thing. They are not, GED is equivalent to the high school diploma, but the academic requirements are lower. Certain careers and four year colleges favor high school diplomas. Myth #2 is that you can take your GED online. That is not true. The GED exam is not available online as of right now. There are study guides online but one has to go to an official place to take the exam. Myth #3 is that if a website ends with .edu that it must be a legitimate school. If it is an older site than it might not be legit. The board of education keeps an eye on it today. Myth #4 online high school are accredited. Not all websites are credible. They are good at pretending to be something that they are not. The buyers money and time would be a waste. Myth # 5 is You can earn your high school diploma in an half and hour. A GED test takes longer to take than 30 minutes. It usually takes 7 hours to take. It is just another scam for someone to make money.

27% of jobs that only use to require high school diploma, now require higher education. Many of these employers surprisingly (but not really) reported “getting a better return on investment” and felt as though they saw higher quality work, better communication, and more revenue when hiring those with college degrees versus employees who only carried high school diplomas. Jobs that use to only requires bachelors degrees now require masters degrees. \

Duvall lost his job, due to not having a high school diploma. Duvall decided he needed to get his GED. He quit school at 15, in the eighth grade. He won the lemonade award at his GED ceremony. Carl Warnke was an award winner, he just wanted a GED diploma. He wanted to show his children the importance of education. He is thinking about taking a few classes as the university just to see if he can do it. The board of education President Nancy Walker told the graduates, "Don't think this is the end, because it never has to end".

As time goes by more students are dropping out of high school to get there GED because of many reasons: problems at home, lazy, the GED is easier. Every situation is different, the GED might be right for some people. The high school diploma offers you more than just education. It offers you the experience and more than just education.

People who pass the GED are supposed to have education and skills equivalent to those of a high school graduate. But critics say the GED encourages some students to drop out of school. And research shows the credential is of little value to most people who get one.
Lauren Scyphers's insight:

The GED is not the same thing as a diploma. The GED was never meant to be peoples second chance. The GED was made because of world war II, Students would be drafted before they finished high school. High School students take advantage of the GED. Students that drop out of High School always say, "I am going to get my GED". GED Students are not prepared for college, It does not measure all the skills you need. It mostly measures cognitive ability. The goal of education is to have the certifying a full scale of skills, and the GED does not offer that. Even now the low paying jobs require a GED or diploma.In the future, it will be very unlikely to be able to get a job without any higher education.
