Community Involvement and Teacher Education: One Experimental Program. The University of Connecticut Technical Paper.
The need for community involvement in a teacher training program is stressed in this monograph. The paper is divided into three sections. The first section discusses the historical view of community involvement in decision-making matters pertaining to education and the growing trend toward a concept of many levels of citizen participation in education. The second is concerned with identifying one university's struggle with the question of defining its role as an urban university and determining within the framework of the definition the most productive ways in which its teacher education program can relate to the community. The third section describes the development of an experimental school which gives high priority to community involvement and the relationship of the University to this school. Concluding comments offer proposals as to the ways teacher education programs can assume a more active leadership role in helping school systems expand some of the experimental concepts noted in this monograph. A 23-item bibliography is included. (Author/MJM)
