“School university partnerships in general and partner schools specifically are the essential vehiclesthrough which we may bring about simultaneous renewal.
John Goodlad

The need for collaborative school-university partnerships during the past decade has led to a number of efforts at the state, regional and national level. As a partner in this renewal agenda Wright State University (WSU), a metropolitan community-focused university, part of the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER), was selected in 1994 as one of 18 institutions whose process for teacher education reform makes extensive use of PreK-12 sector involvement. As suggested by the NNER, WSU has developed written Partnership Agreements with eight school systems requesting partnerships.

These partnership school districts have formally joined with Wright State University's College of Education, and Human Services in a learning community to create the opportunity for the simultaneous renewal of professional preparation, schools, and community agencies.

The College of Education and Human Services’ partner districts represent a diverse representation of excellent local education institutions in the Dayton, Ohio area. The Agreement with each district serves as a working document to articulate the purposes and direction of the collaboration. The Agenda of Education in a Democracy serves as the framework for our Partnership. The Agenda seeks to:

  • Foster in the nation's young the skills, dispositions, and knowledge necessary for effective participation in a social and political democracy.
  • Ensure that the young have access to those understandings and skills required for satisfying and responsible lives.
  • Develop educators who nurture the learning and well-being of every student.
  • Ensure educators' competence in and commitment to serving as stewards of schools.
