PINCKNEYVILLE, IL (KFVS) - The search has begun for potential students to attend Pinckneyville’s Murphy-Wall campus for a GED program this fall.
Adult Education and Family Literacy Director Christina Hutcheson said that the services would be a benefit to the surrounding community.
“We have offered GED classes in Pinckneyville in the past but enrollment dropped off so much that we canceled the class. We have tried several times to revive the class without any success,” she said. “Each year the Adult Education Program is required to submit statistics about the number of undereducated adults living in the college district. After completing that research, I know that there are numerous adults in Pinckneyville that need a GED. Without a high school diploma or equivalent individuals are much more likely to end up unemployed or living in poverty.”
