Or atleast get your G.E.D? There is absolutely no excuse why an able bodied person should not have a diploma.

Please share with me why...if you have neither.

My mother died and I had a baby at 18, but still managed to get my G.E.D and go to college.

I didnt think it was. I had my mom die and my grandmother(our next caretaker since my dad lost it after my mom passed) die as well and my dad fell to drug addiction leaving me to take care of my three younger siblings and i STILL got them to school and passed with honor roll. Its all about motivation.

Home life is key. Also, embarrassment can be a factor for some.

I agree. I graduated at 17. Not having one this day in age is just pathetic. Without a diploma or GED you're just asking to live poorly. I'm sure there will be a few exceptions like sugar daddies or rich husbands but majority of the time that's not the case. The only thing I can think of is laziness.

This is your business because?  I think everyone should graduate high school but it's not something I'm going to get upset about.

I had a really shitty home life and managed. High school was not for me and I never missed it. I loved college though.

Ppl don't have to share. I'm curious bc I personally know a few ppl and they are lazy. I'm wondering if there is a legitimate reason.

 I had a baby at 17, was on bed rest for almost 12 weeks toward the end. I went back to school, got myself back on track and graduated on time and with more credit hours then I needed. So to me, people who don't continue and complain that it's to hard are just lazy. I even said those words to my brother and my cousin who both complained. If I can do it with an infant that didn't like to sleep then ANYONE can do it.
