GED With a Hamburger

Oct 31, 2013


A well known fast food restaurant chain is promoting the General Education Document program in almost half of Kentucky’s counties. People dining at McDonald's restaurants in 53 counties will be encouraged on customer tray liners to take the GED test.

The tray liners will also remind guests that the GED test is changing next year. Anyone who has successfully completed parts of the test must finish by Dec. 18 or scores will expire. The Council on Postsecondary Education says this is the eighth year for the McDonald's GED campaign. It was started in three restaurants by Joe Graviss, a central Kentucky McDonald's owner/operator and member of the council.
