GED and the older GED Candidate

Have an older student who is struggling to get their GED? It is my experience that many times they may take longer to "learn" some of the material. Of course this depends on what their job/s have been since high school. If their job requires alot of reading, writing or math..... great! If not they will need to prep.

As jobs get tougher and tougher to find, more employers are requiring a high school diploma or GED. Also, older students who in the past did not need a diploma to get a job, are now finding that they cannot get hired without one.

Be patient with them..... guide them...... also check to see if they might qualify for accommodations.
