The Consortium of Professional Associations for Study of Special Teacher Improvement Programs. CONPASS: From Its Origins to June 30, 1971.
Fleming, Theodore B., Jr.
This document outlines the history and major activities of the Consortium since its origin in May 1966. It began as a grouping of five discipline-oriented associations concerned with conducting and evaluating Office of Education-funded teacher institutes in specific subject fields. The Consortium has since expanded to a membership of 13 professional associations and is involved in all aspects of teacher preparation. The most noteworthy event in the Consortium's history was the "Grove Park Institute" held near Asheville, North Carolina on June 10-15, 1969. This institute generated 11 position reports, 4 resolutions, and 14 proposals, 11 of which were funded by USOE. Although the Consortium lost its USOE support in May 1971, it will continue on an ad hoc basis to coordinate the action projects which resulted from the Grove Park Institute. (The report includes a list of Consortium board members and an annotated bibliography of Consortium publications.) (RT)
