A Federal Institute, A University R&D Center, and a School District Join Forces: The Processes and the Problems.
Bown, Oliver H.; And Others
The symposium from which these papers were taken dealt with the processes and problems involved in developing a fully collaborative relationship among the federal government (specifically, the National Institute of Education), the Research and Development Center for Teacher Education at the University of Texas at Austin, and the Austin, Texas, Independent School District. The processes are described and analyzed by major representatives of each of the participating partners. The action research conducted cooperatively in the Austin schools was intended to allow each of the partners to create a powerful alliance for increasing educational effectiveness in classrooms while remaining fully accountable to their respective constituencies. These papers focus on the roles and primary concerns of each set of actors and on the responsibilities of project management in fostering the development of an effective research team. (Author/DS)
