Objectives of the program are outlined within the framework of joint sovereignty for teacher education between the University and the public schools. Sections on personnel role, budget, evaluation and research, and contributions to teacher education complete the document. Appended are particularized definitions of Center staff roles and duties, and criteria for staff selection. (SM)
