Analysis of Initial Interviews with First Cohort Mathematics/Science Resource Teachers: A Study of the Milwaukee Urban Systemic Initiative.
Doyle, Lynn H.; Huinker, DeAnn; Posnanski, Tracy
The Milwaukee Public Schools, in consultation with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, received a planing grant for the 1993-94 school year to join in a collaborative effort to conduct the Milwaukee Public Schools Mathematics and Science Self-Study. The goal of this study was to examine the status of K-12 mathematics and science programs throughout the Milwaukee Public School district. The purpose of this report is to contribute data to the formative evaluation of Milwaukee's Urban Systemic Initiative (MUSI) during its first year of implementation. This report consists of information obtained from the initial interviews with the first cohort of mathematics and science resource teachers. During these initial interviews, the first cadre of mathematics and science resource teachers discussed many positive and negative aspects of MUSI after its first several months of implementation. Strengths and weaknesses of MUSI discussed in these interviews are listed. (ASK)
