Newell Truck Stop Testing Program.
Frey, Marlin L.
A unique program for providing General Educational Development (GED) diploma testing is described in this document which includes a brief description of the program, a press release, and a brochure. The program, developed by the Newton, Kansas, Unified School District No. 373, is intended to encourage truck drivers to get their diplomas by administering the tests right at the truck stop and scheduling them at night or by special appointment when it is convenient for the driver. The press release includes a case history of the first person to receive a diploma through the program and background on how the program evolved. The brochure briefly describes the tests and provides information on enrolling in the program and taking the tests. (DC)
