GED expansion

 

This article is about the hopeful, but not so true expansion of the GED education curriculum in schools across America. It is also about how 40% of students will be left behind with this new change in the curriculum .

 

That means that 40% of all colleges will not get this new curriculum change, which will mean that 40% of those colleges will be behind.

 

There were no comments on this article.I think the article is very saddening. This is exactly what I didn't want to read when researching this topic.

 

It surprises me that we as a nation could change something so important as education, but forget about 40% of colleges. 40% is a giant percent of all colleges. I think Obama needs to re-think what he is doing to our education system.
