The concept of professional development schools (PDS) has recently emerged as one of the most exciting possibilities for systematic educational reform. These "teaching hospitals" of the education profession typically are real schools in a district that take on, with a cooperating institution of higher education, special responsibilities for inquiry and professional preparation. Although still in their infancy, PDSs as places for professional preparation and of inquiry into teaching learning and teacher education have major policy potential.

Review quote

"This book considers the possibilities of collaborative relationships between colleges and universities and public schools, particularly urban schools, through professional development schools. Starting with the impetus of the Holmes group, the book places the onus for reform of teacher education at the doors of higher education, and provides a thoughtful critique of the different cultures of these two institutions--higher education and public education." -- Celeste Brody, Lewis & Clark College "The topic of the PDS is central to the viability of teacher preparation--to notions of teaching and learning for the twenty-first century. The book, in fact, approaches the PDS as a field of study, giving it the analysis and attention it needs and deserves." -- Vivian Fueyo, Florida State University
