EDP Success Story Is a Good Reminder That the GED Is Not the Only Option for Adults Without a High School Diploma

This article from The Madison County Courier serves as a useful reminder that there are other ways for out-of-school adults to attain a high school-equivalent credential other than obtaining a GED. With all the controversy surrounding the new GED and/or whether states can or should develop something new to replace it, EDP programs quietly continue chugging along as an alternative. When D.C. LEARNs’ hotline was running at full strength back in the 2004-09 period, we often suggested to callers that they meet with EDP programs, especially those callers who were working full-time in skilled jobs and who had a history of poor test-taking.
