Future Directions for School/College Collaboration.
Brown, Patricia R.; Amsler, Mary
Policy Briefs, n18 1992
This newsletter issue focuses on the directions school/college partnerships need to take if they are to contribute to a genuine reform of American education. It begins by explaining what each sector gains, then briefly describes current models, and highlights programs that can serve as guideposts. It concludes with a discussion of how policymakers can encourage schools and colleges to work effectively together toward system-wide improvement. Programs that are highlighted involve both services to students as well as to educators and include such areas as dropout prevention, programs for gifted and talented students, advanced seminars for educators in different academic disciplines, curriculum and instruction programs, and leadership academies for principals and administrators. Also, illustrations are provided of how the lessons learned from past partnerships can help school officials and teachers get involved with the basic operation of schools, and translate the mechanisms and strategies for improving student performance, curriculum, instruction, and leadership into standard practice in the schools. Contains seven references. (GLR)
