Thank you so much for writing a story about an adult going back to school. I am currently tutoring several students who are pursuing the GED. It is very difficult, even though many people think it is much easier than going back to high school.

Very well written.
What a wonderful truth was taught here by way of a very interesting story. God help us all to persevere when things seem tough.
Oh, I really enjoy stories like this. Nice surprise shift at the end showing who the narrator was. If this is a true story about your family, you must be very proud of your father for continuing when the going got tough. Praise God for "stick-to-it-ness" :)Well written.
a great story at first i was confused as to WHY David needed to get the exams to enable his children to enrole in private school but it all became clear in that it was needed to get a well paid job so he had the money. All stepping stones as well as a great role model.
it surely was perseverance but a zappier title would mean people would turn to your gem of a piece and make it stand out in the crowd... my only real suggestion for improvement
Thanks for sharing this moving story. How proud you must be of your dad.
Thanks for sharing some pages from your family's story. Your dad was a man of character and set a great example for his children. I'm glad this got the recognition of being highly commended.
