The Urban Teacher. A Preliminary Report.
Interstate Project for State Planning and Program Consolidation.
In an attempt to identify the characteristics of the effective urban teacher, 12 teachers each from Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania were selected to work with a small team of state education agency personnel, to list these teacher characteristics, and to recommend various reforms at all levels of the educational system. The teachers completed an extensive background questionnaire and were also interviewed. The data obtained were used to compile several summary documents including a Delphi survey form. The form was used to determine which of the general recommendations would have the support of most of the participants and which would have the most impact on urban education if implemented. These summaries are included in the document. A second conference was held during which teachers prepared specific recommendations in five critical areas: human relations, in-service, curriculum goals and reforms, evaluation and supervision of teachers and administrators, and preservice education. The resulting specific recommendations, the background information, the teacher profile, and interpretative documents were to be presented to the chief state school officers in May 1971, and each state was also expected to act on other applicable recommendations.
