When a College Works with a Public School. A Case Study of School-College Collaboration.
Trubowitz, Sidney; And Others
The development of a community school as a joint project of Queens College, the Louis Armstrong Middle School (I.S. 227), and the New York City Central Board of Education is described in this book. The contents of the book's eight chapters are as follows: (1) an introduction providing background material; (2) a discussion of the foundation on which the collaboration was built; (3) a description of the six-month period before the school opened, when roles were being defined, relationships were being developed, and the resistance and skepticism of college faculty and bureaucrats were being dealt with; (4) an analysis of the development of the college-public school collaboration; (5) an overview of the program's first three years, from the perspective of the college director; (6) a description of the development of the community school and its various projects; (7) discussion of how the community project developed bonds between school, college, and community; and (8) plans for expanding the collaboration to an elementary school. An appendix contains interviews with participants in the collaboration and others. (KH)
