CUYAHOGA COUNTY, Ohio — Cuyahoga County Sheriff Bob Reid wants to reduce the rate of re-offenders at the jail, which currently stands at more than 80%. He hopes by offering the GED test it will give inmates the tools to succeed outside of jail.

Project Learn has been a part of the jail for more than 20 years but this the first time inmates are able to take the GED test behind bars. About 50 inmates are currently taking the course and test.
