  1. Not everyone has the same chances as you and me. What I mean is that not everyone went to public school. There are people who are adults that do not have their GED. It is important to have this since it is the beginning stepping stone for continuing your education and getting a decent job. I would suggest that if you don't have your GED, that you seek out some courses to take and to also practice for the tests. http://pace.nku.edu
