11 Project IDEAL: Student Quotes I like the setup because I can attend class at the center and use the Project IDEAL program to reinforce my math skills. I like it because I can work on my own schedule. I work full-time and it is the only way I can get my GED. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I can work on it and get it done. I love it!!
