Putting Partnerships to Work: Annual Joint Report on Preschool through Graduate Education in Tennessee.
Tennessee Higher Education Commission, Nashville.; Tennessee State Board of Education, Nashville.
This 1993 annual report describes how Tennessee's education system, from preschool through graduate school, works to improve teaching and learning for all citizens. Following a list of State Board of Education and the Tennessee Higher Education Commission members, a preface, and an introduction, the first part details cooperative programs between higher education and K-12 education in Tennessee. The partnerships operate in the areas of work force preparation, teacher preparation, student career opportunities, teacher inservice and exchange, information exchange, and articulation from high school to college. Part 2 presents data that measure the state educational system's progress toward meeting 26 objectives. Part 3 identifies five goals as central to sustained progress: (1) adequate and sustained funding levels; (2) a statewide technology network; (3) an increase in state-of-the-art technology accompanied by effective instructional practices; (4) early childhood education and parent involvement; and (5) university research and economic development. Appendices contain information on the requirements for the annual joint report, a list of Tennessee schools participating in the 1992 Tech-Prep Consortia, examples of cooperative programs, high school graduation requirements, and master plans for elementary-secondary and higher education.
