Second Chance Diploma

American RadioWorks

A new radio documentary about the GED finds that the high school equivalency credential may not be serving its purpose. Emily Hanford co-produced the American RadioWorks documentary “Second Chance Diploma.”

“We don’t have a good system to really help people who’ve dropped out of high school get a good second chance in this country. And, we have as a nation relied very heavily on the GED for a long time," Hanford said.
