Incentives & the military

I just watched a documentary about economics. In the segment on Incentives the researchers used an incentive program in an attempt to boost HS GPAs. One kid said that it didn't matter how well he did in school because he could always drop out and join the Military through their GED program.

Does the military help kids drop out of high school with their promises of a GED and paid college tuition? Does this negatively effect the quality of troops?

What are your thoughts?
