Education UnplugGED is dedicated to destigmatizing alternative educational paths and highlighting the diverse stories of GED learners, educators, and employers. Hosted by Vicki Greene, CEO of GED Testing Service, each episode explores the unique experiences of those who take the road less traveled.

Currently, there are over 40 million adults without a high school diploma.
