School University Partnerships: A Status Report.
Hutchison, Robert N.; And Others
This paper offers a review of the literature on university-school collaborative efforts and describes the status of such efforts in Mississippi. A K-12 task force appointed by the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Education was assigned to perform an audit of Mississippi collaboratives. The audit identified many school-university partnerships involving Mississippi's eight public four-year universities. These are classified into 15 categories: inservice education/faculty development/"academic alliances"; programs offering college-level instruction to precollege students; services for minority, disadvantaged, and at-risk students; gifted and talented; preservice/training new teachers; articulation; curriculum development; research on teaching and learning; programs for administrators; adopt-a-school; consortia; coordination of collaborative activities; national writing project; tutoring programs; and miscellaneous. A table lists the number of people impacted and the amount of external funding made available to these programs. The paper concludes that the programs reported in the audit stand as testimony to the fact that gulfs can be bridged when educators from schools and colleges regard one another as equal partners having overlapping missions. The importance of communicating the existence of projects and their success is emphasized. (Contains 11 references.) (JDD)
