Has anyone gotten an online highschool diploma??

I've passed all sections of my GED except the math...twice. I've studied...I've been to classes blah blah blah. I am just RETARDED in math and I can't seem to ever pass it. I want to know if anyones gotten their diploma online and actualy USED it to get a job. I am not looking to get into colleges I just want to be able to use it for employment if need be. Anyone? If you have what program did you use? I was thinking about Penn Foster.

  • I haven't, but that does sound interesting. What challenges do you have with math? I use to suck big time with math until had to help my kids learn it. I discovered that I was missing some basics that I didn't get in school so It made all math harder. I retaught myself and now it's easy. I no longer use a calculator in the store or for figuring tax or tips.

    Now writing? forget it, I suck. Can't write a decent paragraph if my life depended on it.

    Anyway, hope someone can answer your questions and good luck. :-)
