KLRU adds program to help learners meet GED goal

On January 1, 2014 a new GED test will take effect. People who have already started the GED process,must pass all five segments before January 1, 2014 or will have to start all segments over. Those thinking about taking the GED soon, must start now in order to complete all tests before January 1, 2014.

In an effort to assist our community with this process, KLRU will air GED Connections starting January 7th. Engaging documentary-style videos introduce content and give learners a chance to hear from experts in various fields and advance toward their GED with programs covering each test area. Students hear and see how the skills they are learning for the GED exam relate to work, home and community life. GED Connections will air on KLRU at 5:30 am Monday to Friday and on KLRU Q 2:30 pm Monday to Friday.

If you need more assistance than the television show can provide there are several options in the KLRU viewing area.
