Governance of Teacher Centers. Special Current Issues Publication No. 2.
Dambruch, Edward L.; And Others
This booklet contains four papers on teacher center governance, each written from a different perspective, and each dealing with a different aspect of teacher centers. The first paper discusses issues concerning the governance of teacher centers and deals specifically with (a) collaboration, (b) affiliation, and (c) parity. It is written from the perspective of a representative of a federally funded teacher center. The second paper deals with governance from the perspective of the Atlanta Area Teacher Education Service (AATES), whose teacher center operates through a consortium. The activities of the AATES are traced from its creation in 1945 to its model teacher center program in 1970 to its 1974 feasibility study for the establishment of a teacher center to serve metropolitan Atlanta. The third paper furnishes an example of the kinds of programs which can exist under school-district governance. The history, organization, and projects of the San Francisco Unified School District Teacher Center are described. The fourth paper is a proposal for a teacher center by the Des Moines Education Association Instruction and Professional Development Committee. It is an example of how a teacher center is initially conceived. (RC)
