Horn, Aaron S.; Reinert, Leah; Jang, Sung Tae; Zinth, Jennifer Dounay
Midwestern Higher Education Compact
As dual enrollment programs continue to expand, a critical challenge is to ensure that the quality of such courses offered in high schools is equivalent to the quality of courses taught in postsecondary institutions. Standards for faculty qualifications have historically constituted one facet of efforts to regulate educational quality, and thus this report examines state and regional accreditation policies relevant to instructor qualifications for dual enrollment programs. First, results are presented from a content analysis of state policies for dual enrollment instructor qualifications. Second, the faculty qualification policies of regional accreditation organizations are compared with a particular emphasis on the Higher Learning Commission and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Third, a description is presented of state strategies to increase the number of in-service teachers qualified to teach dual enrollment courses.
