Summary

In response to a challenge by the Kansas City Public Schools superintendent, Central Missouri State College (CMSC) instituted the Inner City Teacher Education Project (ICTEP) to prepare teachers in teaching and understanding disadvantaged children. Originally a spare-time program of field trips and seminars, it was developed in 1965 into a full-time 5- to 6-month block with four instructors and 24 students involved in conventional teacher education courses, a thorough study of ethnic groups, minorities and the poor, at least nine hours of psychology and sociology, field trips to the inner city, and inner city student teaching. Because ICTEP was a departure from standard teacher preparation with excellent results (favorable reports from Kansas City and winner of the 1966 American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Distinguished Achievement Award), the program raised serious questions about the relevance of conventional teacher education, causing great dissension on the CMSC campus. The number of students participating in the program decreased, and in 1966, six of the seven most closely involved with the project resigned. However, one of those who resigned, Dr. Grant Clothier (who joined the Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory), is planning a project patterned after ICTEP for fall, 1967 (see SP 002 249).
