Toward a Partnership in Teacher Education.
Behling, Herman E., Jr.
This in-depth study of the teacher education center movement in Maryland begins with a discussion of the need for change and the forces and circumstances which contributed to that change. It also describes in considerable detail the program which resulted in the teacher education centers of Maryland, outlines the structure of a typical teacher education center, and identifies some of the major problems encountered with some possible pitfalls which might be avoided. A final section describes the role of the State Department of Education in its leadership function for the improvement of teacher education programs in the state, traces the developments which made such a role possible, and outlines plans for the future. A breakdown of costs for a proposed 5-year state-sponsored student teaching program is included. (RT)
