APB Program Cited in National Report

From: Bridgewater State College
The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) has prepared a new national report entitled, “Preparing STEM Teachers: The Key to Global Competitiveness,”(pdf) and BSC is one of 50 teacher-preparation programs profiled for its ongoing commitment to increase the number of K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educators. The report was presented to the U.S. Senate STEM Education Caucus on June 21, 2007. The report makes specific mention of Bridgewater’s Accelerated Post-Baccalaureate (APB) program, an innovative curriculum designed to help mid-career technology professionals make the switch to the teaching profession. Since December 2002, the college has endorsed 161 math and science teachers for initial licensure through the program.
