GED & Basic Education
To get a good job today, you need academic and workforce skills. Adults without a high school diploma earn on average $10,000 less per year than a person with a high school diploma or GED. This could add up to nearly $300,000 over a lifetime!
The equation is simple: More Education = More Money.
In 2014 the unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma was 9%, while the unemployment rate for those with a high school diploma or GED was 6% and 3.5% with a college degree.
More Education = Better Job Opportunities.
