School-College Relations in Preparing School Personnel.
Olsen, Hans C.
This monograph analyzes the current situation in the school-college relationship in preparing school personnel and suggests some future developments. The growth of this cooperation is traced from its tentative beginnings in the early years of the century to the much greater activity of the 1960's. The rationale for cooperation and partnership is examined, and five of the common forms of partnership are described: internship, teacher centers, laboratory centers, regional councils, and partnership at state level. The author then considers some of the issues and problems involved in the current situation, as well as the promising developments, including the increasing participation of state departments of education and teacher unions and associations. Four probable future developments are identified as 1) greater emphasis on partnership at the state level; 2) an increasing participation by teacher organizations; 3) the development of the teaching center as the clinical dimension of teacher education; and 4) a greatly increased student participation in the decision-making structure. A 140-item bibliography (SP 004 720, available separately) forms a part of this document. (MBM)
