In the article, “ Get a Real GED - Is it Worth It ?” we examined the data that supports the benefits of a real, legitimately earned GED. This website gives you the truth about the diploma mill and fake degree business and of course you could buy a phony GED for a hundred dollars or so if you wanted. However, chances are good that fake GEDs and high school diplomas are unlikely to get you anywhere. Avoid websites that offer quick and easy high school diplomas or offer to give you the GED test online. No legitimate online GED tests exist.
Most of my students seem desperate to blend in, to look right, not to make a spectacle of themselves. (Do I have to tell you that those two students having the argument under the portico turned out to be acting in a role-playing game?) The specter of the uncool creates a subtle tyranny. It's apparently an easy standard to subscribe to, this Letterman-like, Tarantinolike cool, but once committed to it, you discover that matters are rather different. You're inhibited, except on ordained occasions, from showing emotion, stifled from trying to achieve anything original. You're made to feel that even the slightest departure from the reigning code will get you genially ostracized. This is a culture tensely committed to a laid-back norm.
