Higher Education and the Honor Student: Attracting the Best.
Segall, William E.
Oklahomans are looking to their colleges and universities as avenues through which the diversification of the state's economy and economic salvation can come about. The challenge to higher education is identifying qualified students, and identifying their teachers who can assist them in making wise choices in planning their college careers. The Academic Bowl, an integral part of Oklahoma State University's public effort to encourage excellence in Oklahoma's secondary schools, has fostered an awareness of Oklahoma higher education and attracted a teacher cadre of exceptional talent and ability. A survey of 26 Academic Bowl teacher/coaches found that they have continuing opportunities for having long-term influence on their students--extremely capable students who generally leave the state to attend college or after college graduation. Statistics show the teaching areas of Academic Bowl teacher/coaches and number of years taught in school. Statistics also show the choice of college and choice of majors of Academic Bowl graduating seniors. (JDD)
