Adult High School (AH)l is better than General Education Diploma (GED) because of the type of setting environment, availability of assistance, and material used.
In adult High School the setting is different from GED settings.The AH students have a designed building, they have small class which enables for the adult student to get abundant help. For example In an Adult education setting-young adults are able to socialize, emotionally connect, and learn from experience of their fellow classmates or schoolmates. There is competition since all student talk to each other they know who is an “A” student which leads to high competition or they admire each other and that leads to productivity of their studies.The students in adult high school that I conducted research on at Mclain Adult High School of Jeffco go to school from 8:30AM-1:15PM. They have three classes from Monday to Thursday and one class on Fridays that is an elective class that ends at 11:30AM. Davine Wolfe who is among the adult students that I interviewed said, He wakes up early enough to enjoy his three class and can work full time in the evening and same time enjoy what is left of his day on the other hand,GED setting is different. First there are no Schools that is just build for GED students and if there are classes offered it is 2-3 months time. Students are expected to passes their GED and head out. Adult high- schools have books, computer, and tests that are complete introductions. If a student needed to study on their own they can just go get the book and the book introduces the introduction of the topic they are looking for but GED has a limited information, for the person just to pass the test. What happens if you have no strong foundation for you to understand the subject you want to pass? Kim said that “GED is for people who have strong foundation, self discipline, goal oriented”; she said if you have these qualities than you are the perfect candidate for the GED test.. the Adult High School get a lot of help with their studies compared to GED students.
At adult high school students can ask assistance from the teacher after class. The teachers know who is struggling and need help-they know the pace they need to deliver their material and how. Teachers in Adult High School are professional and hold at least bachers to teach but GED Teachers are not required to have bachelors or masters. Kim from the research interview said, “the teachers who thought the class sometimes had trouble with the questions and had to skip”. Does GED help people with disabilities like ADD,ADHD, AUTISM, ASPARAGUS, or people with mental disability? This is very discouraging. Adult people also need little bit of help and encouragement to pass it through.
Schools in HS use useful material and complete for their studies. teachers teach the material, there are books that have the subject that you need to study. For example In an Adult education setting-young adults are able to socialize,...
