Adults - Stay with it - Getting your GED leads to a more successful future!
IT'S WORTH IT!
On average, high school graduates earn $9,620 more per year than dropouts. Potential increased earnings for 2015-16 Kentucky GED® graduates alone will be nearly $1 billion over a 30-year career. Here are few more good reasons why you should stay with it:
- High school dropouts are more likely to be unemployed and three times as likely to be in poverty.
- Parents are a powerful educational role model. Your attitudes and action toward education set the tone for your children.
- Increased education has a positive effect on health status.
The big lesson here? Do it now for the personal satisfaction of completing your high school credential and opening the door to better careers and higher wages.
