The Continuous Process of School Improvement: Lessons Learned from the Past.
The Teacher Corps is now 15 years old. The program is already an important part of the history of the attempts to change American education, particularly the preservice and inservice education of teachers. During the last two years, it has embarked upon an ambitious program stressing demonstration and institutionalization of effective educational strategies. That thrust has the potential to substantially increase the impact of the program. This essay is designed to clarify the major elements of the current Teacher Corps thrust and to place it in the context of other past and current efforts to improve schooling and the preparation of teachers. Its goal is to provide Teacher Corps project personnel and others concerned with educational change with some lessons learned from educational research and evaluation, lessons which may help them to strengthen their own efforts.
