The Liveliest Seminar in Town. Fastback No. 27.
Parker, John L.
This booklet describes how a group of doctoral condidates at Harvard established the Clinical School Collaborative and how they tried to shape their ideal into a reality. The group wanted to form an organization which did a better job in teaching students, training adults, and pursuing research than existing institutions. They held discussions in which they formed their ideas, and they wrote a proposal which they submitted to approximately 350 institutions and school districts. They received a number of enthusiastic answers and began to narrow down their choices. The Portland, Oregon school district became their final choice. From the time of inception until the final choice was made, the membership of the group changed for various reasons. As group members came and went, the composition of the group altered accordingly, and became more routinized and hierarchical. A year after the idea was first conceived, four of the educators finally went to Portland to plan Adams High School which opened in September 1969. (RC)
