Inter-State Collaboration in the Era of "A New Compact for Learning."
Urzillo, Robert; And Others
As the year 2000 approaches, the need for rural schools to rise to the challenges of the future becomes more pressing. This paper articulates: (1) the concept of inter-state collaboration in teacher education; (2) how colleges and public schools can work together to meet the needs of students in rural areas; (3) the New York State and Vermont Service Agreement; (4) student teaching; (5) continuing professional development of teachers; and (6) prospects of shared technological resources. These and other related topics are examined in light of "A New Compact for Learning: Improving Public Elementary, Middle and Secondary Education Results in the 1990s," published by the New York State Education Department. Collaborative ventures have begun to be instrumental in changing the way colleges and schools perceive each other. Broader outlooks begin to emerge as professional educators at both levels make efforts to empower each other to take on new responsibilities. The concept of collaboration, as it matures, becomes a major vehicle as well as a clearinghouse for new and innovative ideas. (Author/LL)
