I'm getting my GED soon and I'm just wondering if I can work during public school hours if I have it.

It is possible for some minors 16 and 17 years old to work during public school hours if they request a partial waiver and meet certain criteria. Waivers are approved on a case by case basis when it is in the best interest of the minor.
