Basic Education includes:
- basic and remedial education to achieve a literacy level of at least grade level 9.0;
- English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, except ESL that is Vocational Training (see PM 21-03-02);
- elementary and high school classes; and
- high school equivalency classes (e.g., GED classes).
Allow one hour of study time for each credit hour of class when figuring participation hours. If the class is not listed in credit hours, then use actual class time. Round fractional hours up.
