As universities and colleges across the country are joining local school districts in order to develop teacher training programs in joint college-school ventures, administrative organization is a limiting problem in many quarters. At a time when the concern is for clinical experience in a school setting where teacher excellence is measured in terms of competency, we are faced with the problem of assignment and supervision. The school, with its concern for alternatives to meet individual differences, is seeking a greater role in teacher education. Assignment of student teachers to one class, setting, and teacher often results in prescriptions for teaching rather than decision making. College-school teacher training centers are being formed in many areas to provide a setting where all personnel are studying teaching. Two levels of administrative models are described--a college-school center and the Center for the Educational Professions which can house a number of college-school centers. The experimental model presented in this paper is a micro center providing an administrative structure which will respond to the concern for realistic laboratory settings and coordinated clinical experiences sessions. It is a presentation in secondary science. The Center for the Educational Professions is an administrative model responding as the cement for college-school ventures. (Author/MBM)
