Could sending high school seniors to college on a full-time basis asking for trouble?

Parents are concerned, but administrators said they don't foresee problems.

"I don't see it as anything different than what we do with the post-secondary option," Huron superintendent Fred Fox said. "In both cases, students are on campus, getting a higher education."

Huron City Schools is one of about 42 districts in Ohio participating in Gov. TedS trickland's Seniors to Sophomores Early Adopters program this fall. The program will allow high school seniors who qualify to attend a local college or university full time, earn enough credits to earn a high school diploma and enter college as a sophomore.
