General Educational Development (GED)
GED embraces those aspects of formal and informal education that contribute to the worker's:
(a) reasoning development and ability to follow instructions
(b) acquisition of "tool" knowledge such as language and mathematical skills.
Experience and/or self-study can develop GED.
There are three categories of GED: Reasoning, Math, and Language.
