The GED and Beyond. Focus on Policy. Volume 1, Issue 1
Cain, Alice Johnson
National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL)
"Focus on Policy" is NCSALL's (National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy's) newest publication. Its purpose is to synthesize research findings and highlight policy implications of these findings. "Focus on Policy" forgoes the usual academic conventions to provide its readers with an easy-to-understand summary of research. This first issue explores the value of a General Educational Development (GED) credential, the need to help GED holders be successful in postsecondary education, and ways to help those who do go on to further education and training succeed at it. This issue contains the following articles: (1) Is the GED Valuable to Those Who Pass it?; (2) Is it Time for the Adult Education System to Change Its Goal from High School Equivalency to College Readiness?; (3) Blackboard; and (4) A Model for Adult Education-to-Postsecondary Transition Programs. Individual articles contain references.
