The article is a good overview of what's happening in Pathways program and why it's so important. It's a timely read too, as author Steve Lilienthal notes:
Recently, there has been a great deal of focus in Congress and the higher education community on for-proﬁt institutions accepting poorly prepared students. It’s not a minor issue. The danger for many GED recipients with marginal academic skills is that their ﬁnancial aid will be dissipated paying for remedial courses that must be taken to improve skills, but do not count as credit for their degrees. Pathways can help to prevent students from suﬀering such shocks.
