Models of School-University Collaboration: National and Local Perspectives on Collaborations That Work.
Hathaway, Walter E.
Starting with the premise that improved collaboration of elementary and secondary school systems with universities and colleges is essential not only to the improvement of education but to its survival, this document summarizes a series of papers on issues pertinent to school-university collaboration in such areas as basic research and evaluation, staff development, sharing of expertise, and service to clients. After an introductory essay that addresses the reciprocal need of schools and universities for greater collaboration, papers on the following topics are summarized: (1) the history of collaboration between school systems and institutions of higher education; (2) the fundamental issue of control in collaboration between schools and colleges; (3) obstacles to collaboration; (4) models for organizing joint efforts; (5) examples of successful efforts across the country; and (6) possible guidelines for implementing a collaboration. Forty-five references are included. (TE)
