Program helps single moms earn GED

Posted on: March 20, 2009

From the Selma Times-Journal:

Even Start is a program aimed toward single mothers without high-school diplomas. Instructors prepare participants for the GED test. Since the program is a collaborative effort between Selma City Schools and Wallace Community College-Selma, advisors help enroll the women in college.

The program runs inside Payne Elementary on Tuesday through Friday. For a little more than six hours, women study for the GED and learn life and parenting skills. Meanwhile, their children play and learn in a nearby room. Even Start facilitator Drue Lee said it is the perfect situation.
