Many people realize that adult education is in place to help those who did not finish high school. Some may have quit their final year or two of high school, while others may have completely missed out on any aspect of high school whatsoever. Either way, adult education is put in place to help them finally get their high school education in the form of a high school diploma or GED (General Education) certificate.
By getting their high school diploma through adult education, these adults are finally able to go through their lives with this education; some adults will use this diploma to get the normal jobs that are simple, but require a diploma. Others use their high school diploma to go on to college or take college type courses.
This is why adult education is incredibly important for not only the adults who use it, but for society in general. Society as a whole benefits from someone who is smarter than they were before; an increased education leads to smarter decisions. An increased education means that they are more active members of society, and technically have “more to offer”. This education allows them to act as a whole part of society, through their work and career.
Adult education is an amazing way for an adult to take their spare time and turn it into something beneficial. Because they are working toward their high school diploma, the students are working toward bettering their lives and attempting to further their place in whatever field they may choose (or just to make money in general). Either way, adult education is beneficial to more than just the students who take classes; it is beneficial to society as a whole.
