Adult Education in Prison

A prison sentence doesn’t have to stop someone from reaching their goals.

There are programs in prison that will improve life outcomes after release. One of those programs is HopeWorks’ Adult Education which helps inmates in Shelby County Division of Corrections earn their High School Equivalency diploma.

Isn’t that a GED?

Think of it like Coke or Pepsi. They are both soft drinks, and people have opinions about which one tastes the best. GED and HiSET are brands of tests. The state of Tennessee prefers the HiSET brand of testing. What really matters is earning a high school equivalency diploma that helps build a better future.

What’s the process?

How will this help?
