School/University Relations: Partnerships and Networks. Occasional Paper No. 2.
Clark, Richard W.
This occasional paper provides a comprehensive review of literature pertaining to one of the major activities of the Center for Educational Renewal: the establishment of school-university partnerships for mutual improvement and the creation of a national network for purposes of supporting and communicating among the partnerships. After a brief introduction, the second section reviews the literature that defines key terms used throughout the monograph: networks, collaboratives, cooperatives, partnerships, and other terminology. Section 3 provides a historical perspective on school-university collaboration, while section 4 examines contemporary examples. Section 5, "The Whys, Wherefores, and Whatnots of Collaboration," examines the reasons individuals and organizations offer for seeking collaborative arrangements, and considers the benefits claimed for such efforts. It then reviews the obstacles reported as creating difficulties for those who seek success through collaboration, and concludes with a set of suggestions for making collaboration succeed. The final section examines implications for study and action. A selective annotated bibliography is appended, followed by a standard comprehensive bibliography. (TE)
