Using an Accelerated Schools' School-University Partnership To Inform Change in a College of Education's Teacher and Administrator Training Programs. Draft.
Allen-Haynes, Leetta
This paper summarizes a case study of an educational reform strategy involving the development of a school-university partnership in which the university was a member of the National Accelerated Schools Network. The Accelerated Schools model builds on strengths, emphasizes agenda and resource sharing, and institutionalizes the school-university collaboration process. The Accelerated Schools model implies that genuine and lasting educational renewal and change can result from a system of educational organizational development and research which can impact both the present practice and the training of future teachers. The case study, which used John Goodlad's "ideal partnership paradigm" as the conceptual framework, revealed the potential for changing education by linking school-level realities to college of education teacher and administrator preparation programs' pedagogy and practices. The study also revealed that the establishment of a mutual goal, rather than involvement in a particular project, provided the primary impetus for the partnership's development. Four separate stages of the partnership could be identified, to which four separate sets of role relations and expectations were attached. (Contains 60 references.) (JDD)
