The Good School of Education: Linking Knowledge, Teaching and Learning. A Report Prepared for the Education Review Committee, University of California Systemwide Administration. Revised.
Gifford, Bernard R.
The University of California, its campuses, and their individual schools and departments of education have substantial responsibilities for providing research, training, service, and leadership in the field of education. The responsibilities of the units differ. As yet, however, none is fully meeting its obligations to improve education. Part I of this report describes missions it is believed the University of California's schools of education should pursue, including: (1) professional training (teacher education and advanced professional training); (2) advancement of knowledge and training of scholars; (3) service to the field and coordination with institutions; and (4) advocacy of the improvement of education. Also discussed in part I are the changes the University and the campus administrations must make for the University to assume leadership in the reform of public education. Part II of this report describes what the missions of the School of Education at Berkeley should be, their current efforts and plans, and the additional resources and other changes that must be obtained if the university is to achieve its objectives. References, tables, and reviews of school of education faculty personnel are appended. (JMK)
