What's New in SNI Adult Education (formerly GED®)?
We have a new name! The GED® name has been purchased by a publishing company (Pearson), and has become a registered trademark. This means that GED® must be represented by the registered trademark symbol whenever it is used in communications such as this article. So it was necessary to change our program name to something that wasn't owned.
In addition, Pearson will make sweeping changes to the General Education test to be put in place January 2014. The good news is New York State opted out of Pearson's plan, along with many other states. New York has been in negotiations with many companies to have a test written, and be phased in over the next three years. They just announced CTB/McGraw Hill, as the writer of the new High School Equivalency Diploma test, a blessing to our program because we currently use many of McGraw-Hill's cutting edge, research based resources in our classroom!
