Teacher Corps--Demonstrating the Concept of Alternative Schools.
Freiberg, H. Jerome
The University of Houston/Houston Independent School District Teacher Corps project is designed to demonstrate the operation of an alternative school program intended to promote desegregation and to train educational personnel to function effectively in alternative schools in an urban setting. The project demonstrates how coordination of the resources and needs of collaborating agencies--the district, the university, the profession, and the community--can promote success of the individual within an alternative school. The project has seven major goals: to develop and field test a program that puts students and instruction at the center of the decision-making process; involve parents and the community in decision-making; provide multi-cultural, bilingual instructional materials; develop a coordinated preservice/inservice staff development program for personnel at all levels; establish a center for the development of human potential; provide a comprehensive strategy to facilitate operations of alternative schools; and provide a model for disseminating products and processes produced.
