GED changes are on the way

The Adult Learning Center in Henderson encourages students to finish their GED test before the end of the year to avoid losing all of their scores. Starting January 2nd, the new GED standards go into effect, and the price jumps from $60 to $120. In addition to changes in subject material, the entire test will be computerized. Students will have to use whiteboards and computer calculators instead of scratch paper and hand-held calculators. Henderson's Center currently offers tests on the first Thursday and Friday of each month.
