Collaborating: Lessons Learned from Experience.
Fox, G. Thomas, Jr.; And Others
This monograph was prepared by a group having many years' experience with the Teacher Corps and the effective establishment of partnerships between K-12 schools and postsecondary schools, colleges, and departments of education. An evaluation is presented of circumstances that help or hinder collaboration between colleges of education and schools in improving staff development and teachers' work conditions. A number of college of education and school district procedures are cited that currently hamper growth in the collaboration procedure. Among suggestions for improvement is a strong plea for redistribution and reassignment of the missions and responsibilities of schools and colleges of education. It is pointed out that there are difficulties in collaborative action when professors in schools of education maintain an aloofness which effectively isolates them from the "hands-on" experience of teachers in schools.
