Cooperative Relationships in Preservice and Inservice: A Report Prepared for Division H, AERA.
Richards, Les
Communication and openness seem to have a major impact on relationships. The scope of communication activity undertaken by many university schools of education includes workshops and institutes, periodic meetings, print and other media, demonstrations, and formal and informal training. In all activities, these schools have a responsibility to the school systems that they serve. Some, however, do not accept that responsibility very well. Through policies of academic advancement and consequent concentration on professional development, schools of education often promote faculty withdrawal from field-based operations and concentration on production areas where rewards are more fruitful. Preservice and inservice teacher education programs need to reevaluate their services and communication lines to the districts they serve. In preservice programs, school systems must feel part of what is happening at the university. Inservice programs must facilitate cooperation between the public school teachers and university faculty in designing programs that meet mutual needs. An effective and successful relationship between university schools of education and school districts can be achieved through an atmosphere of communication and openness. (CJ)
