Getting your diploma is a long road when you've left school.

In Johnson City, 20 adults got their GEDs, reports William Moyer at the Press & Sun-Bulletin:

In all, 56 adults earned GEDs during the 2010-11 term at the Family Enrichment Network. "It was a chance to be responsible, to grow up and to be an adult," said Samantha Dutcher, of Johnson City, who got her GED four years after leaving Union-Endicott High School during her senior year in 2007. "I was nervous to go back to school. It wasn't too bad. I did my homework."

At the New York Post, Naomi Schaefer Riley has a column lambasting what she sees as the practice of ranking schools based on how much money they can eek out of taxpayers.

University at Albany is announcing a micro-loan program tomorrow, reports Leah Buletti at the Times Union, to give low-income entrepreneurs a kick start.
