GED classes available

The new GED test in 2014 is designed to be more relevant to job market demands. While the old exam tested students mostly on reading comprehension, the new test will gauge a test taker’s understanding of subjects and how well they can apply that understanding to real world experiences. Free GED classes are available at the First United Methodist Church on Hwy 51. Times are 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays and Fridays. Call 817-573-5573 for info. Child care is provided for toddlers.
