i also disagree... i am a 16 year old full time college student, and loving it. thanx to reciving my ged.. and its not like it says ged or anything? i have my diploma like everyone els who graduats "properly".. its the same exact thing. all i did was take two extra steps forward. no body considers me a quiter, infact to most i am considerd an over achever.. :p but i really dont care what other ppl think of me. i think you should think 2ce about judjing all highschool drop outs.

Droping out of highschool isnt a smart decision even if your going to get your ged. Getting your ged only shows your employers that you are a quitter and like taking the easy way out.

i would have to say that i disagree with that.  just because you drop out of high school does not mean that you are "a quitter" there are a plethora of reasons for people dropping out.  yes, just being lazy is one of them, but i think that people would be suprised to know that laziness is probably not the number one reason. 

i do a agree that it is not the best decision, but i dont think i could say it qualifies you as a quitter.
