The Urban Education Programs at Fordham University's School of Education.
Rivlin, Harry N.
The preparation programs for urban teacher, administrator, and specialist (e.g., guidance counselor, school social worker, etc.) at Fordham University's School of Education are described in terms of the urban setting; the university-community relationship; cooperation between the school of education and other university units; and the faculty involved, including the name of each member and a brief description of his qualifications. Features of the programs include (1) on-the-job training with university guidance, support, and supervision; (2) learning by performing a skill in the context in which it will be used; (3) theory and practice taught as two phases of the same process; (4) emphasis on social as well as individual factors affecting learning; (5) cooperation between schools, communities, and universities; (6) continuing professional growth of both school and university personnel; (7) intrauniversity cooperation; and (8) for the teacher, rapid preparation as an apprentice teacher and subsequently as a beginning teacher, with advanced study of education problems and practices postponed until enough teaching experience is gained to give such advanced study meaning. The first class in the teacher preparation program began in February 1967. (SG)
