A Graduate Program for the Trainers of Teacher Trainers for Leadership Roles in Urban Education. An Overview.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA.
With the ultimate objective of creating conditions in inner-city schools that will enable children to learn, Temple University has begun a program to recruit and prepare doctoral candidates in English education, mathematics education, social studies education, and science education for leadership roles in urban education. The four components of the program are academic education, professional education, school and college internships, and community involvement, with emphasis on the latter two. The academic and professional education components are coordinated by a 20-member Metropolitan Advisory Committee composed of representatives from the public schools, the community, colleges within the university, state and community colleges, and high school students. The internship component includes teaching, classroom research, and student teacher supervision, first in the public schools and then at cooperating colleges. The community involvement component is to be elaborated by Black and Puerto Rican Community Program Planning groups to provide contacts in the homes, in the streets, in the churches, in recreation centers, and with landlords, police, and health agencies.
