Factors Influencing Success in a School-University-Industry Partnership for Teacher Education.
Clark, Richard J.
A three-year partnership between the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), a group of school systems, the Massachusetts High Technology Corporation, and Digital Equipment Corporation achieved the goal of recruiting outstanding BA and BS graduates, with majors in math or science, into teacher education and teaching. The success of the Math/Science/Technology Education Project (M/S/TEP) is a result of the partnership. This paper identifies eight factors critical to the success of this program which can be applied to similar partnership efforts. Factors include: (1) clarity and perceived priority of objectives; (2) short and long-term measurability of success; (3) service to self-interest of each partner; (4) indispensability of each partner; (5) power and authority of each partner's representative; (6) recognition of different capacities of, and constraints upon, each organization; (7) benefit of ambition and risk taking; and (8) commitment to coordination and management.
