The Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory's Cooperative Urban Teacher Education (CUTE) program, a cooperative field experience program for the recruitment and training of teachers for the inner city, is the focus for discussion of teacher education in this collection of speeches made at the Eighth National Clinic of the Association for Student Teaching. Topics which are considered in the speeches include the problems resulting from the present loading of education away from inner city problems and toward problems of the middle class; priorities in the equalization of educational opportunities, such as the resolution of racial and socioeconomic problems; a description of the Associated Colleges of the Midwest's Urban Semester program for Chicago which is similar to CUTE; a particularized presentation of the CUTE program, emphasizing behavioral objectives; the nature of the problems and factors affecting organizational change within the hierarchical bureaucratic structure of the educational system; the necessity for immediate reform in education in an innovative way; and proposals for providing for future educational needs in the CUTE program, including a teacher preparation model.
