Good Behavior Credit for Obtaining GED's?

"Stephen Andrew Moller was released from his 5-year suspended sentence on July 1. His sentence had already been reduced by two months after receiving a good behavior credit for receiving his GED while in prison." from QNotes which focuses on gay news in the confederacy.

WTF? Why is receiving a GED in prison grounds for receiving "good behavior credit?" Isn't in everybody's interest to obtain a GED?

(For more background news, about the story wikipedia offers a brief summary. Note that Moller was 18 at the time he killed Sean W. Kennedy).
