The future for GED in Corrections

Greetings! I'm wondering what is happening in other states concerning the administration of the new test, with it's computer-only status, in our corrections environments. I work in a rural program which serves several county jails and a small state prison, and we don't know yet what is going to happen with testing in 2014.If anyone in Georgia knows what to expect here, I'd love to hear it, as well as what other states are expecting.

Blogs for those without Internet Access

Colleagues,

Generally incarcerated people don't have live access to the Internet (including email). The only example I know of where they do is in a jail in Syracuse New York where inmates have supervised access to education-related web sites. What I just became aware of, however, is that through the Between the Bars project, http://betweenthebars.org/blogs/  people who are incarcerated, and without Internet access, can also blog.
