Re: “Governor sets higher education goals, including funding change

Today I learned about some great news for all those who failed their regular high school education, and let's face it, there's hardly any job out there that doesn't required a secondary education degree. Here's some great news: The minimum required test score to pass the GED exam will be changing in March. GED Testing Service (the publisher and owner of the GED) is expected to adjust the pass score to 145, down 5 points from the now required 150 mark.
This implies that numerous of GED test takers who failed by just a small margin, now will receive GED diplomas. This step was taken because studies have shown that now (some 2 years after introducing the expensive, computer-based, new GED exam) all across America GED graduates seem to be doing better in college than high school graduates. Apparently, the bar was raised to high for those who chose the GED path to get their secondary education degree.
But students must be aware that this only applies to the pass score. The GED exam itself, and the four independent, rigorous tests are not changing, and preparation is as crucial as ever before.
I sometimes write content for a website (GED Easy) that includes online GED video instruction (for free), and this website now is launching the "GED Easy Challenge". Adults who pass the four GED tests (Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies) within a specific time frame (155 days) after registration for the challenge, will get a Kindle Fire for free. The Kindle Fire is the perfect device for reading articles or books, and also for entertainment. Adults without a high school diploma who want to learn all about this initiative can visit this website: http://gedeasy.com/ged-challenge/
GED Easy offers all support at no cost.
