Yeah. Everyone knows that a GED is the key to success. If you dropped out of school (or god forbid allowed a child to) then please fix the situation ASAP. A "smart" person with no education is more ignorant than a kid that struggled through and bothered to learn math, grammar, science, and life skills. A person needs education to succeed regardless of where they live. Anyone doing an interview is going to hire a person with a good vocabulary and speaking skills over a person without (assuming both are qualified) regardless of the position. Please don't get on an anonymous forum convincing kids that dropping out of school is acceptable, let alone advantageous.

And to answer your question, no. Nobody with any sense laughs at those commercials. Good day.

Dropping out of the beyond repair cabell county education bureaucracy doesn't mean not getting an education it just means you have enough sense to open your life to better opportunity . Step outside the matrix . But then again the most huntington has to offer to us young people is a burger flipping job or delivering pizza . If the working poor would rebel and put huntington In The rear view then who would prop up our precios elite and the college children ?

There are alot of comfortable living jobs in this area if you finish school and apply yourself. I know I graduate in 99 and have worked on ever since. You may have to do more than walk a couple blocks to get there but they are there I could name quite a few off the top of my head. But the truth is most people around here drop out to become artist and draw checks their whole life with a GED
