ok,so i wasnt sure where to post this, and sorry if this is a stupid question.
But, i was just wondering what is so bad about getting your GED?
i've just been having alot of issues with school, and i am considering to just get my GED since nothing else is working out. And my mom agrees that thats like the only option left at the moment, but she just keeps telling me 'i've always dreamed of seeing my daughters well educated and working a successful career when they were grown'
but isnt getting your GED still getting your education?

Many see it as it is. It is often assumed that the person's work ethic may be poor. If they couldn't/didn't finish H.S. but got a GED , why then would they be a good worker. I am NOT saying this is how I think. My husband is a Navy recruiter and it is difficult for persons with GED to join the service. They have to have at least a 50 out of 99 on the ASVAB or have completed so many college credits if they wish to enlist.

There's nothing wrong with it...people just try to make someone feel bad because they have one. When In all reality you can still go to college and have a good life with one.

see i didn't think there was anything wrong with it, cause my plan is to get my GED and head straight to college and start a career
but my mom is constantly saying she wishes i could stay in school cuz she thinksa GED isn't good enough.
and i always tell her its pretty much the same thing, and i tell her that i'm still gonna go to college and have a successful career,
but she always rolls her eyes at me.
