In-Service Education within Schools: A Comparative Perspective.
Dahawy, Bayoumi M.
This paper prepared in the United States by a visiting faculty member of the Suez Canal University in Egypt, presents a comparative study that finds that school-based in-service training sessions, in which teachers learn within their own teaching environments, do much to encourage more teachers to adopt a more positive attitude to the revitalization of teaching techniques. The research looked at and compared school-based in-service education and teachers' centers in the United Kingdom and the United States. Five specific questions were used to guide the research: (1) What is the definition of in-service education and why is it important? (2) How can the teacher education level be improved through in-service education? (3) How can the status of the teaching profession be raised? (4) To what extent can the schools play a vital role in in-service education? and (5) To what extent can Egyptian schools benefit from the experiences of English and U.S. schools? (DB)
