The Madison County Regional Office of Education has opened a new facility designed to help residents of Southern Illinois obtain their GED’s or other professional licensure. Dr. Robert Daiber, Regional Superintendent of Schools in Madison County says the center was opened following the elimination of all paper GED testing in January.

He says all GED testing must now be done on a computer at an approved facility.
