Forty thousand Pennsylvanians face a critical deadline this year. Few of them know about it.
Forty thousand is the number of the state’s residents who have started the process of getting their high school diploma by taking the GED tests. They have passed one or more of the five tests, but they have not completed the entire series.
The GED Testing Service in Washington, D.C., is completely revamping the GED tests. The deadline is Dec. 31 to complete and pass all sections of the current GED test.
