This newsletter capsules information on and for new careerists (paraprofessionals) for the fall of 1968. Highlighted in brief articles are the Department of Labor's financial support for the education of second-year participants in the New Careers program; the success of Head Start's Supplementary Training Program (for Head Start staff, especially paraprofessionals) in provoking educational institutions to change entrance requirements, course offerings, and credit granting; the positive effects of Minneapolis' new careerists on their program (which includes education at the University of Minnesota) and on their kindergarten students' readiness; innovations in the use of paraprofessionals in education in Detroit, Tuscon, Berkeley, and Alabama as reported in a Bank Street College study; and research projects funded by the Office of Education for new careers in public service.
