High school diploma vs. G.E.D The common educational path for an american student is to pass elementary school, jr. high, and high school. Putting the student around the age of eighteen upon graduation and receiving their high school diploma. However, due to life challenges or family obligations not all students complete this path. That student has the opportunity to take the G.E.D, also know as the general educational development, allowing them to receive a certificate stating they are at a high school education level. The G.E.D and the high school diploma have similar worth and criteria, but their time required to complete, age requirement to take the test, and the use after high school sets them distinctly apart.
English 101 29 April 2014 Education: Receiving or Claiming? In Adrienne Rich’s “Claiming an Education” Rich presents the argument of claiming an education.

Do you receive an education for society or does society present it for a student to take? Rich seems to think that education is presented for those willing to claim it. “The first thing I want to say to you who are students, is that you cannot afford to think of being here to receive an education; you will do much better to think of yourselves as being here to claim one.” (Rich) Perception
“I feel sorry for the person who can't get genuinely excited about his work. Not only will he never be satisfied, but he will never achieve anything worthwhile” (Walter Chrysler).

However at the same time you need to know whats beneficial for you and your future.
