Overview

Teacher education institutions, working to build strong collaborative partnerships with local school districts, are one of the key ingredients in successful school reform. In Partner Schools, diverse contributors offer an inside look at promising school-university partnerships across the country and discuss the principles and benefits of such programs in promoting educational innovation. They provide practical insights—and important cautionary advice—on how to develop and sustain successful partnerships that strengthen teacher preparation programs and improve teaching and learning in the classroom.Using numerous case examples, the authors elaborate on what partner schools are and how they operate—how student learning is affected, how teacher preparation and professional development is nurtured, and how an atmosphere of continual inquiry and development is sustained. They explain how partnerships are initiated and how their influence can extend from local to state levels.
