MCALLEN, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — South Texans without a high school diploma now have access to new cutting-edge resources as part of the revamped GED program.
The new 2014 GED program launched on January 2nd and includes several features that weren't available in the past, such as immediate results from computer-based delivery.
GED President Randy Trask says these new resources will help students be better prepared for the test.
"I think Texas has a very rigorous high school program, and our test reflects the rigor in the Texas program," Trask explained. "But I think what makes it, it's misleading to say it would be easier, it's not going to be easier, but it will be more focused. We're gonna give them more information now for them to have a successful testing experience."
It is estimated that there are 3.5 million high school drop outs in Texas. Trask hopes the improved GED program will create a better life for those without a high school diploma.
