The Impact of GED Testing
The GED test is considered a stepping stone for those without a high school diploma towards employment and college. The test has become a matter of recent debate after a 2014 remaking of the test led to higher failure rates. Because of this, the passing score was lowered and now thousands across the country are being given their certification. This hour, we will discuss the GED, how it's scored and the benefits of earning the certificate.
