Don't Hold Them Back. A Critique and Guide to New High School-College Articulation Models.
Whitlock, Baird W.
The issue of early admissions or high school-college articulation is examined. Following a historical analysis of early college, reasons for and drawbacks to such a change are discussed. The experience at Simon's Rock Early College between 1972 and 1976, when they instituted a four-year program beginning after tenth grade and ending with a B.A. degree, is described. The remainder of the book examines different methods of breaking the traditional articulation of high school and college including the Advanced Placement Program and the International Baccalaureate, high school-college programs, early admission, the middle college, and the early college.
