Warren, Louis L.; Peel, Henry A.
Education, v126 n2 p346-352 Win 2005
This paper describes a study of a collaborative initiative between a rural high school and a university. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of collaboration in a rural school reform partnership. What grew out of this study was a collaborative model of a partnership. While partnerships are not unique, there is a unique nature of how universities successfully partner with rural schools. Educators in rural schools, as well as university faculty members who serve rural schools, may fine the description of the partnership instructive as they embark on similar ventures. Addressed in this paper are the unique characteristics of rural school and the fundamental principles of rural school/university partnerships.
