Of course your HS diploma will be worthless if you don't go to college and earn a degree. HS is the middle of a staircase, you can't expect to stop after so many stairs and expect to get to the top. You have to put in the extra effort and climb the whole thing.
I found that out the hard way, luckily I joined the military and decided to continue to get an education. These days you can't even make rank in the Army without a college education.

I never thought of it that way. All I ever saw it as was a way to just restrict our rights, and didn't realize that it could go deeper than that. Thanks for the insight!
