A View from the Schools

by Stuart C. Rankin - 1983

We in the schools are often asked to react to research, scholarship, and theory about education. Such is my assignment for this yearbook—to consider the utility of the ideas in the preceding chapters for school improvement involving staff development. What does all this mean for people in schools? First, a review is given to the ideas presented by others on staff development; these reactions deal largely with the participants, the content, and the processes. Second, some concerns about staff development are identified that are important for school people, and a guide for school improvement is presented that fits with the ideas on staff development in earlier chapters and with the concerns of practitioners.
