Take Back Kentucky Legislative Action Alert
Sponsor(s): J. Tipton
Status: Feb 18, Introduced
Committee: Not assigned to committee yet, but most likely will go to Education
Timeframe: ANY TIME
Message is for: All House Leadership, YOUR Representative, and members of the House Education Committee.
Message: “Support HB 432. Diversify Adult Education Choices”
Optional: E-mail the legislators on the committee. Example e-mail address: Firstname.Lastname@lrc.ky.gov . If that doesn’t work they have a contact page on their informational page.
Information: This bill would remove the GED Trademarked Test as the only High School Equivalency Exam. Currently the GED has been bought by Pearson, and Pearson is a big proponent of Common Core. Recently the GED test has changed to accommodate Common Core and test scores are dropping and fast, this is not a coincidence. Those responsible for this need to be held accountable.
