When Macon State earlier this year announced the development of
the bachelor of science in early childhood education, College
officials predicted a charter class enrollment of about 50. Macon

begin upper-division coursework this fall were accepted. The degree
program the will help produce new teaching talent for Central
Georgia schools is off to a strong start.
