CHANGING THE PECKING ORDER.
HOWE, HAROLD, II
THE CURRENT INFLEXIBILITY OF BUSINESS AND COLLEGES IN WANTING TO USE ONLY "CREDENTIALED" PEOPLE (I.E. THOSE WITH A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR COLLEGE DEGREE) IS ACTING AS A BARRIER TO QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS WHO WERE UNABLE TO COMPLETE THEIR EDUCATION. TO COMBAT THIS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT (1) EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS BOTH CONTINUE AND AUGMENT SUCH PROGRAMS AS UPWARD BOUND AND TALENT SEARCH, (2) COLLEGES LEARN TO RECOGNIZE TALENT AND ABILITY IN A DEPRIVED PERSON EVEN THOUGH HIS ACADEMIC RECORD MAY NOT REFLECT IT, (3) COLLEGES USE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION SCORES AS DIAGNOSTIC DEVICES TO INCLUDE, RATHER THAN EXCLUDE, THE DEPRIVED--E.G. IF AN APPLICANT'S SCORES SHOW HIM TO BE DEFICIENT IN A SUBJECT, HE SHOULD BE ADMITTED, AND PLACED IN A COMPENSATORY COURSE RATHER THAN BEING REJECTED, (4) BUSINESS RELATE THE SUBPROFESSIONAL ROLE TO THE PROFESSIONAL ROLE SO THAT SHIFTING FROM ONE TO THE OTHER IS EASIER, AND (5) BOTH COLLEGES AND BUSINESS GIVE CREDIT FOR EXPERIENCE, EVEN IF CREDENTIALS ARE NOT PRESENT. OVER-RIGID, CONFLICTING, STATE-BY-STATE TEACHER CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS ALSO NEED TO BE OVERHAULED, RELAXED AND STANDARDIZED IN ORDER TO MAKE AVAILABLE THE ABUNDANCE OF QUALIFIED BUT UNCREDENTIALED TALENT ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD (CHICIAGO, OCT. 24, 1967). (AW) AVAILABLE TO TEACHING. PAPER PRESENTED BEFORE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD (CHICAGO, ILL., OCT. 24, 1967). (AW)
