Volume 113, Number 14 (2011)

 
by Jane E. Neapolitan
The idea of “currency” is implied in the title, for, as many of our contributors discuss within their chapters, the professional development school (PDS) cannot and will not prevail in its present form without dedicated fiscal backing and sustained commitment for integrating the PDS effort into new structures.

As a result of the government’s criticism, a plethora of reform agendas and reports were commissioned, trying to make sense of the issues and find long-term solutions. Among these are four key efforts that laid the groundwork for the professional development schools (PDS) movement.

In this chapter, we build on the discussion of the history, trends, and issues of the PDS effort described in Chapter 1 (Rutter, 2011) while examining the approaches for PDS implementation set forth by organizations that have had a major influence on PDS development.

The authors don’t attempt to overstate the scope of development or level of impact with respect to PDS. On the positive side, they remind us that hundreds of NCATE’s accredited institutions report that they are engaged in PDS partnerships, involving at least one, and often more than one, school partner.

In this chapter, we review the existing literature with a focus on three key areas: (1) the ways in which PDS models are structured to improve student learning, yielding a rich description of PDS interventions for student achievement; (2) the impact of PDSs on student learning and achievement, with a specific focus on publications that used rigorous research designs and/or captured student achievement with multiple measures; and (3) the extent to which PDSs have a differential impact on the learning of low-income and culturally and racially diverse students.

All the authors also caution us that the evidence is not always robust, that much more evidence is needed, and that there are many additional related lines of inquiry that require exploration. But, these cautions aside, the three chapters each use the research to go inside PDS settings and classrooms and provide an up-close look at implementation and results in relation to teacher preparation, professional development, and impact on students.

My approach to writing this chapter is to comment first on the two essays and then provide readers with my personal history intertwined with my own perspective and recommendations for the future. My history and past experiences with action research in school–university partnership settings and with schools as self-renewing institutions have dramatically shaped my perspective on PDS as leverage for education change, improvement, and reform.

In this chapter, we briefly examine the literature related to roles, structures, and governance and the typical players in PDSs, while making a case for the rediscovery of the community as having a critical role in PDS work.

The rapid proliferation of newly established professional development schools (PDS) partnerships accentuated concern associated with the lack of conceptual clarity of the PDS concept itself. Levine and Churins (1999) warned the PDS community that this innovative institution needed standards to ensure the necessary rigor, accountability, and sustainability.

Long-term PDSs have been successful at navigating accountability, resource, and infrastructure issues as partnerships are shaped and modified to meet the needs of the schools and universities.

Writing this afterword pulls me back in. The fine scholarly work of the Yearbook—its focus on history and purpose, on research and impacts, on structures, roles and accountability, and on leveraging change—has enabled me to reconnect with my roots and passion. Rip Van Winkle, looking with a fresh set of eyes on something that is both familiar and removed. Here’s what stands out to me.
