The University and the School System: A Case Study.
Miller, Douglas R.
When two long-established institutions attempt a cooperative program, there can be several different kinds of conflicts. A current trend is to arrange cooperative projects between school systems and the teacher preparation component of a college or university. One such project, an inner-city student teaching program is reviewed in this paper. First, the structure and history of the program are discussed. Then, two sections examine the organization and institutional conflicts (persons-in-positions, person-shuffling, spheres of influence, implicit vs. explicit policy, and financial conflicts), and climate and expectation conflicts (personal defensiveness, competition and rivalry, racial attitudes, and student attitudes). An overall theme of this paper is the "person-in-a-position", i.e., the conflicts which arise, or are avoided, as the result of the specific person who occupies a specific position. (Author/AM)
