Changes Coming to Tennessee GED
Tennessee adult education program organizers say anyone thinking about getting their GED should do so now before sweeping changes take place in January.
According to The Tennesseean, that's when the cost to take the GED will rise from $75 to $120, and that the test will only be available on computer, requiring keyboard skills. State officials say the GED is undergoing its biggest overhaul since the 1940s. GED testing services director Susan Doughty says the changes are designed to bring the test more in line with Tennessee's push to common core standards. The state Department of Labor and Workforce Development says between 900,000 and one million adults in Tennessee do not have a high school diploma.
