The problem with that is that I got my GED in order to get Federal employment. I made the right choice paying my way through GED courses, getting good job experience with people and engines and making ~$75K during the past 4 years than waiting for a program to open up like one of my friends tried. He may have gotten a few tangible skills but I have better financial security and a stronger perception of this clockwork world.
I guess the Job Corps is a great option for those that have been spinning their wheels for a long time but if you're young and have a sharp mind, go get your GED. There's no excuse not to do it.
