The Social Context of Educational Partnerships: A Semantic Review.
Stoloff, David L.
This paper examines the changing nature of societal perspectives and the social contexts of educational partnerships or collaborations through a semantic analysis of the literature on educational cooperation and related educational themes and practices. In addition, a continuum of leitmotives on educational partnerships drawn from historic and current writings is reviewed for their influences on contemporary practices. From these research bases, a predictive model for trends or cycles in educational partnerships is offered with a focus on how government will support such collaborations in the 1990s. The conclusion--that state governments should initiate projects that bring faculty from the primary, secondary, undergraduate, and graduate segments of American education to plan educational improvement strategies together--underscores the point that any restructuring of American schooling requires cooperative involvement among all its external and internal constituencies.
