The Four States Project: California, Colorado, Oregon, Wisconsin. Report Special, The NDEA National Institute for Advanced Study in Teaching Disadvantaged Youth.
Kelly, James, Jr.
This document reports a feasibility study of state efforts in training teachers for the disadvantaged, a four-state project designed to (1) identify ways that training funds and other resources could be used more effectively in the improvement of preservice and inservice teacher education, (2) create a state structure or pattern of relationships which might facilitate the coordination and effective use of higher education resources for Title I training programs and others, and (3) develop statewide models for achieving the above ends in the four states which might be used by other states. The four chapters are abridged from the final reports of each of the four project components: the California project designed to evaluate teacher response to past efforts at retraining as a basis for improving state programs; the Colorado project in which colleges and universities in the state cooperated to develop models for possible use by teacher training institutions; the Oregon project which tested, through implementation of model programs, the possibility of the use of university resources to aid school districts in an inservice program to retrain teachers and teacher aides; and the Wisconsin project, a grass roots effort to establish a state pattern of relationships among various education agencies to produce more effective training programs.
