Quick Overview

A joint collaboration between ACSA and the California Association of Professors of Educational Administration (CAPEA), this book looks at the relationship between higher education and K-12 public education from several perspectives.

Product Description

Ever since Socrates there has been some tension between town and gown, or practitioners and academics. In some ways this tension is healthy when each side provides loyal, supportive criticism of the other which improves public education. Educational administration faculty need feedback from practicing administrators in order to focus on real administrative problems; educational administrators need educational administration faculty to undertake needed research to improve the profession. While the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) and the California Association of Professors of Educational Administration (CAPEA) recognize this healthy tension, these two professional organizations have long sought to encourage a cooperative relationship.

This book looks at the relationship between higher education and K-12 public education from several perspectives. We hope these chapters will generate ideas pertinent to establishing partnerships between university educational administration programs and K-12 schools.

Chapter 1 details the experience California Lutheran University has had, establishing “Leadership Training Centers” and “Professional Development Schools.”
Chapter 2 describes an experimental program for the preparation of educational administrators, based upon a partnership between a California State University and the Pomona Unified School District.
Chapter 3 urges faculty to volunteer for WASC accreditation teams to become more acquainted with current K-12 schooling, and to serve the educational administration profession.
Chapters 4 and 5 detail characteristics of good partnerships and suggest a wide range of possible and mutually beneficial partnerships between higher education and K-12 schools.
Chapter 6 mentions the wide range of relationships which educational administration faculty already have with K-12 schools.
Chapter 7 presents an ideal relationship between educational administration programs and the K-12 public schools.
Chapter 8 describes the first year of a promising partnership California State University-San Bernardino has established with a middle school where 80% of the students qualify for free/reduced lunches, and 70% are Hispanic students and 15% African American students.
