CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming has one of the highest success rates for incarcerated individuals seeking to accomplish their GED.

Through the comparison of two national studies, Wyoming ranks second among 45 states in the percentage of the total inmate population who earned a GED during 2010. Oregon was ranked first.

In addition, one report showed that 204 individuals out of the 226 who received and completed the GED programming class passed their GED test for a 90 percent pass rate.

According to current statistics, about 13 percent of inmates who enter prison in Wyoming have not completed high school or obtained their GED.
