Life After High School
Students have many choices after high school. Some students choose to attend a college, community college, or technical school. If you want to attend a university, you will probably need to have a high school diploma. It’s not the actual diploma in which they’re interested, but rather the education this document represents. Some community colleges or technical schools may not deny you admission because you lack a diploma, but you may need the education from high school to act as a foundation.
While some students choose to continue their educations, others prefer to enter the workforce. Having a high school diploma can help graduates land positions other than low paying or entry-level jobs that provide little opportunity for career advancement. A high school diploma shows the employer that you do have an educational background and other skills, such as problem solving, that you’ve obtained through your classes.
Those at Career Colleges (www.careercolleges.com) say that it is rather difficult and awkward to explain to a potential employer that you don’t have a high school diploma, particularly when applying for higher-paying positions. They also say that when you try to convince your children of the importance of education, they might not believe you because of the choices you made. If you do have a diploma, you can avoid these awkward situations and feel better about yourself. You will have earned a sense of accomplishment and will be able to support your opinions with the knowledge you have from school, which can help you feel more confident.
If you are considering not earning your diploma, make a list of the benefits of dropping out of school and then one considering the benefits of earning your diploma. Compare the two and then decide. Think hard about your decision before leaving high school; it’s much easier to leave than to return.
