More inmates at the Kentucky River Regional Jail will now be able to get their GED's faster.
Thanks to a federal grant, inmates can now get their GED with a new computer program for the first time. More than 15 inmates will now be eligible to graduate each year.
"I dropped out of high school when I was a senior. I'm 50 years old and I'd like to change that. This is an opportunity," said Paul Smith.
"Be able to better myself, as far as getting a job, making more than minimum wage and be able to support my family better," said Todd Johnson.
Officials say the inmates will not have free internet access and will be closely guarded with an instructor in the room at all times.
