Move over GED!
Have you heard the great news? Colorado residents wishing to take a high school equivalency exam soon will have up to three options, not just one. This means our teen moms will no longer have to travel to Wyoming to take HiSet, a high school equivalency exam with a reasonable pass rate.
This is an important development in our state as a GED is required to apply to community colleges, vocational schools, universities -- and for more jobs that pay a self-sustaining wage. Clearly earning a GED is a vital step in the journey out of poverty, which is why this fantastic news for the teen moms working hard in our GED Program.
