Firestone, William A.; Pennell, James R.
American Educational Research Journal, v34 n2 p237-66 Sum 1997
State-sponsored teacher networks in Vermont and California are compared, using interviews with teachers, network staff, and policymakers. It is concluded that state-sponsored networks can improve teachers' knowledge and motivation while empowering them. Recommendations are made for loosely coupled and capacity-building strategies to support reform. (Author/SLD)
