Does a GED Lead to More Training, Post-Secondary Education, and Military Service for School Dropouts?
Murnane, Richard J.; Willett, John B.; Boudett, Kathryn Parker
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v51 n1 p100-16 Oct 1997

However, fewer than half of GED recipients obtained postsecondary education or training. (SK)
