Building the Steps of the Career Ladder.
Lehane, Stephen; Goldman, Richard
This paper describes an experimental Bachelor of Arts program at Kent State University which is tailored to recognize field accomplishments and, at the same time, to meet the special needs of experienced early childhood workers. The program is designed for individuals who have had minimal exposure to higher education due to economic hardship. The proposed program consists of three phases: (1) outstanding individuals will be awarded sophomore standing in the baccalaureate program on the basis of their demonstrated talent in the field; (2) two years of university-sponsored correspondence work will be completed by each student under the direction of a qualified supervisor already operating within the individual's locale; and (3) a residency of a year (or some portion of a year) will be completed on a university campus. The steps in the development of the program at Kent State are described and future plans for further implementation are discussed. (JMB)
