If you look back to the 70s and 80s, many people were able to get by without even having a high school diploma. You could get a labor job and make $20 an hour without much effort. These days, these jobs are much harder to acquire. Not getting some sort of post high school education these days is the equivalent of dropping out of high school 20 years ago.
If you do not have some sort of education these days, most companies will throw your resume away before ever talking to you. It is very imperative you have an advanced education if you want to be successful. So, you've been out of high school for a while now and you have responsibilities and don't have time to go to school. The dawn of the information super highway, aka the internet, has given people many options that were never available even five years ago. You can get just about any type of education online and the best part is that it is significantly cheaper!
You can work on obtaining your diploma or degree from home, whenever you have time, at your own pace. There are so many benefits to having an education that it would take me hours to sit here and type them all out, but here are some of the major benefits which include the following:
