Nearly 410,000 working-age Kentuckians (ages 18-64) lack a high school credential. Reecie Stagnolia, vice president for Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE), will discuss how this important issue impacts Kentucky as a guest on the premiere episode of the fifth season of KET’s Education Matters. The program airs Monday, September 23, 9 p.m. EDT and 8 p.m. CDT.

The program will examine what the state’s adult learners can do now to complete the current GED® test and how and why the GED® test will change starting January 2.

The episode features interviews with recent GED graduates at adult education centers in Russell and Pulaski counties.

Other panelists include:

  • Martin Kehe, vice president of products for GED Testing Service®
  • Cristina Marsh, adult education manager for Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Shelby and Trimble counties, Jefferson Community and Technical College
