Community Colleges To Offer Elementary Education Degrees

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Plans to offer four-year degrees in elementary education at four Oklahoma community colleges will help increase the number of elementary school teachers in the state, authorities said.

Mid-America Christian University plans to broadcast courses this spring to rented classrooms at Western Oklahoma State University in Altus, Seminole State College, Redlands Community College in El Reno and Carl Albert State College in Poteau.

The school expects about a dozen students at each location. The program will allow students at the four community colleges to gain their degrees without traveling to a four-year campus.

Oklahoma will need more elementary school teachers in coming years, as school districts grow and many existing teachers are nearing retirement.
