Friday, September 20, at noon -Second Chance Diploma: Examining the GED - Today's workers need more education and skills than ever before. But 39 million adults in the United States don't have even the most basic credential: a high school diploma. Many hope their ticket to a better job is passing a test called the GED. But critics say the test is too easy and hardly the equivalent of a high school education.

 

 

 Previously aired - Friday, September 6, at noon - One Child at a Time: Custom Learning in the Digital Age -  Researchers have long known the best way to learn is with a personal tutor.
