I’m sad .
The school system should create a rule where no child is left behind . It makes me sad that someone gave up on me , I was a kid I couldn’t fight for myself an no one taught me the importance of Education.July 25, 2022 at 6:45 am #404551
The U.S. No Child Left Behind Act of 2002-2015 was about providing more education opportunities for k-12 students, focusing on 4 key groups of students: students in poverty, students of color, students receiving special education services, and students who speak and understand limited English. It was replaced with Every Student Succeed Act signed by President Obama in 2015.
I am sad too that you were left behind, that no one fought for you and that no one taught you the importance of education. So many children were left behind and are left behind in so many ways. I was one of many. The title of your thread is Letting it Out… if you need to let having been left behind more, please do.

I think I’m the result of kids having kids . My needs weren’t met , and I suffered.
So Ged testers are allowed to use a specific calculator (TI-30XS ) during the test, I’m currently on YouTube teaching myself how to use this calculator . My test is scheduled for this up coming Saturday. I’m excitedJuly 26, 2022 at 6:34 pm #404615
Emily, a kid having kids, didn’t get a childhood, not a carefree, happy childhood. I don’t think I’d be able to learn how to use a fancy calculator (fancy for me!) watching a youtube, I am impressed by you! Four days to the test, exciting indeed!

Thank you for reading and responding. This website is a gift to people like me . Feels good to add something Positive to my story (my life) . In 2022 I earned my Ged !!July 28, 2022 at 7:27 am #404654
You are very welcome and thank you for expressing your appreciation. And again, congratulations for earning your Ged in 2022!!!
I read that Chris Rock left high school early, then earned his Ged, next he attended community college (before pursuing comedy and acting). Another celebrity, Catherine Zeta Jones left high school at 15 for acting, won an Oscar and after that, she earned her Ged. There is a list of other celebrities who earned their Ged, as well as people who are no less important who did the same, such as Crisanto Luna (Texas) who at the age of 90 earned his Ged Diploma, and Marco Johnson (Alabama) who dropped out of high school at 16 when his mother died, and earned his Ged Diploma while working as a middle school custodian, with the help and support of the faculty and students (Proliteracy. org), Jennifer (no last name provided) was bullied in high school to the point that she stopped attending classes and expelled for poor attendance. She earned her Ged, ““Getting my GED proved that I could accomplish a lot more in life.”, she said (ged. com).
And now, there is Amazing Emily and her success story!

I can’t believe it . This week Wednesday I passed the final section of the test . My childhood caused me so much pain and I still was able to get my Ged .July 29, 2022 at 2:42 pm #404729
This is why I chose the adjective AmAzInG to describe you: you passed the final section of the Ged in spite of your very painful and difficult childhood and life… you are an inspiration to me!

I’m trying to create a life worth living . In the beginning I didn’t have a plan for my future because I didn’t know I needed one . Being me is hard I didn’t and still don’t have a role model . The last thing I remember of my mother is her passing away in her sleep , so I figured if I earned my diploma than that’s the last thing I remember about me . I want a enjoyable life , like I’m excited to be on earth . I feel like I be suffering and struggling All the time . I guess I make bad decisions, and get bad results .July 30, 2022 at 11:21 am #404758
“I didn’t and still don’t have a role model… I feel like I be suffering and struggling All the time. I guess I make bad decisions, and get bad results“- if you had a positive, emotionally healthy parent or role model when you were growing up, you would have gained the emotional resources it takes to make good, wise decisions.
For example, if you had a role model who modeled assertiveness (the ability to identify and voice your needs in ways that are most likely to get your needs met), you would have gained a very important emotional resource that would have made it possible for you to make good, wise decisions.
But without a role model, how were you to learn assertiveness and other skills that are so crucial to making good, wise decisions.. ?
“If I earned my diploma than that’s the last thing I remember about me” – I am not sure that I understand this sentence, can you explain it to me?
“I want an enjoyable life, like I’m excited to be on earth” – it would be nice to feel joy once in a while, more often than before, won’t it…?
