Perhaps you’ve applied for a job and have been refused an application because you don’t have a high-school diploma or a General Educational Development (GED) diploma. Or maybe you were up for a promotion at work, but when your boss found out that you didn’t finish high school, he said you weren’t eligible for the new job.
