Do you have a High School Diploma or a GED?

For those that dropped out, do you regret it? Just curious.

  • I have a diploma. And knowing how hard I worked to get it and how I have yet to have needed it in my life, I regret not simply dropping out and moving on with my life. My "additional schooling" didn't even require that I had a diploma in order to complete their programs and being my own boss I certainly don't care if I have it. I've never been asked to prove I have it when applying for another job and it's never proven useful to me as a mother... So what exactly was the point in staying in an abusive home just to get it? I could have gotten out and moved on...

    My DH, on the other hand, has a GED, he dropped out of HS so that he could work full time and care for his mother while she was dying. And no, he'll be the first to tell you he doesn't regret it.

  • Diploma. I hated school, so I doubled up on some subjects and graduated early.
