The partnership focuses on four areas: preservice education, in-service education, curriculum, and research/evaluation. Through the partnership, new evaluation models have been developed, discretionary time has become available for various types of teacher in-service activities, curricula have been updated and developed, and teacher-guided research Is being initiated. Problems in restructuring education also are discussed. These include concerns over time commitment and resources, faculty support, and lack of correlation with advancement procedures.
