School-University Collaborations. Fastback 485.
Verbeke, Karen A.; Richards, Patricia O.
Within the past 2 decades, the nature of school and university partnerships has changed so that collaboration now represents a real opportunity to make systemic change and improvement. A number of factors influence the success or failure of such collaborations: (1) shared goals; (2) institutional differences; (3) assessment and accountability; (4) individual differences; (5) communication; (6) time; (7) resources; (8) roles and responsibilities; and (9) process assessment and outcome evaluation. Some exemplary models of partnership are described. Collaboration between schools and universities may be the best hope for education reform, and is certainly worth the effort it requires.
