Munter, Judith H.
Teacher Education and Practice, v17 n3 p279-298 Sum 2004
In today's increasingly complex society, schools and communities must work in partnership to develop the foundations for a more just and equitable future. On the U.S./Mexico border, the University of Texas at El Paso's (UTEP) College of Education has long integrated schools, families, and community partners into its teacher education program to prepare future educators for the challenges and the potential of their careers. This article uses a qualitative perspective to examine some of the impacts of these partnerships on students' knowledge, understanding, and attitudes.
