This book examines the critical relationship between higher education institutions and K-12 schools ? especially higher education's role in implementing systemic school reform. It analyzes key aspects of higher education/school interactions ? teacher education, partnerships for learning, college preparatory curricula, admissions practices, and faculty research Andeavors ? to uncover the factors that stand in the way of more effective collaboration.

Higher Education and School Reform helps define what schools and higher education need from each other, and explores new models for a more productive working relationship. Administrators, researchers, and policymakers will find it an essential addition to their school reform libraries.
