About this book:

As teacher preparation undergoes closer scrutiny on the national scene, reformers ask: What is the future of Professional Development Schools (PDS)? How can research better address the developmental needs of partnerships? What types of organizational structures can ensure partnership success? What is the future of leadership in PDS? Are diversity and social justice - part of the original PDS vision - being served, as well? Written by scholar-practitioners who represent a new generation of PDS researchers, this book is a valuable source of critical analysis, reflection, and implications for taking PDS partnerships into the future for true school-university-community collaboration.
