I Passed the GED!

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 10:05 AM

I am a white, middle-aged, middle-class professional, who happens to be severely under-educated by contemporary standards. I completed two years of high school before embarking on my uninterrupted life of self-supporting work. I did receive some vocational-related certificates. But, they don't count.

I've always considered the GED a waste of time and money, and I am not sure if I've changed my mind. However, when I read in the news that the test is being changed at the end of the year, I decided to go take it. I wasn't the oldest person at any of the five tests. I saw people cry during the test.

If I told my wife, she would probably leave me. I definitely wouldn't get points at work. My friends' views of me would adjust, negatively. Who or what is a fraud?
