A Study of the Feasibility of the Refined Syracuse University Specifications for a Comprehensive Undergraduate and Inservice Teacher Education Program for Elementary Teachers. Final Report.
Weber, Wilford A.
This study examined the financial human, material, and organizational feasibility of developing and operating the Syracuse Model Elementary Teacher Education Program. (Phase I report is ED 026 301 and ED 026 302.) The study was conducted by the Syracuse University Protocooperative, an organization composed of four public schools, two Title III centers, a regional educational laboratory, a group of educational futurists, an educational industry, and the University. A major emphasis is on the detailing of costs associated with implementation of the program. Additional outputs from the study include a refinement of the model, descriptions of strategies dealing with various aspects of program implementation, detailed specifications regarding the personnel, material, and facility requirements of the program, some generalizations concerning exportability of the model, and a simulation package (described, but not included in this report) which allows potential adopters to face the problems of implementation. Major conclusions are: 1) The refined Model seems acceptable to the Protocooperative members and to the majority of teacher educators sampled. 2) Specifications of the program do not call for personnel, facilities, or materials which are unobtainable. 3) Program costs would be reasonable. 4) The Model Program is, in every sense, feasible.
