On November 1, Simon's Rock Provost Ian Bickford gave a talk at The City Club of Cleveland on early college.
Entitled "Why Wait? Early College: National and Local," the talk discussed the growing influence of Bard's model in both the context of national education policy as well as within the city of Cleveland itself, where a second Bard High School Early College campus opened this fall.
Students from both of the BHSEC Cleveland campuses were in attendance, and offered up their own experience of the program near the end of the event.
For those who would like to listen, the talk can be streamed via The City Club of Cleveland's website.
