Report on Articulated Programs Coordinating Secondary and Post Secondary Institutions.
Lieberman, Janet E.
This report reviews secondary school/college articulated programs at 13 schools. Articulated programs are those which typically offer flexible enrollment opportunities in college level curricula for students who may be simultaneously enrolled in secondary institutions or who may leave secondary school early to pursue a higher education. Five principal types of programs are discussed: (1) early admission; (2) split day; (3) college courses taught by college faculty at high schools; (4) college courses taught by high school faculty at high schools; and (5) "separate" setting programs (separate faculty and differentiated curricula in separate facilities). Strengths and weaknesses of each type are analyzed, as are barriers to acceptance of innovative structures by students, educators, and the public. Specific steps recommended include professionally conceived and directed advertising, formation of a coordinating agency, establishment of a clearinghouse for information dissemination, special training for administrators, and development of faculty and federal economic incentives. A checklist for establishing articulated programs is included as are recommendations directed to formulation of supportive federal policies for articulated programs. (JDS)
