Dear Short Answers:
My son wants to quit school. He says he will get a GED. Is a GED as good as a high school diploma?
NO. A GED is not as good as a high school diploma. Studies show that graduates are better able to hold jobs and advance, develop long-term relationships and stay out of trouble than those who earn a GED. This is because kids who stay in school learn lessons like persistence, the ability to delay gratification and commitment to goals. Do every thing you can to keep your son in school until he graduates.
