Inservice: The Key To Reform?
Enyart, Susan E.
Results are presented from an exploratory study considering a comparison of NSF-funded professional development programs for inservice teachers related to mathematics education reforms of the 60s and the 90s. The research involved: identification of differences and commonalities existing between professional development programs for inservice mathematics teachers in these two eras; determination of how these programs are related to the comparable yet evolving forces, issues, and expectations related to the reforms and professional development; and ascertainment of implications for making future policy decisions concerning professional development funding. Projects from the 60s and 90s were found to differ in nearly every aspect of organization, content, and results. In each era, programs for professional development were found to directly reflect changing forces, issues, and expectations associated with mathematics education and professional development of the time.
