Summary

A study was made to determine the current status of selected administrative areas of student teaching programs in Massachusetts and cooperative student teaching programs throughout the nation, the desirability of establishing cooperative programs in Massachusetts, and the organization and impelementation of these programs. Specific administrative areas investigated included the selection of cooperating school systems, the appointment of personnel, the nature of the student teaching experience, the remuneration made by the colleges, the types of orientation programs, the use of nonpublic schools, and the use of supervisory and evaluation practices. The responses to questionnaires of the participants (including all Massachusetts superintendents of elementary schools, all Massachusetts directors of elementary student teaching programs, and directors of cooperative student teaching programs throughout the nation) were gathered and compared, revealing that the profession in Massachusetts is dissatisfied with the current status of student teaching programs and is willing to implement change. (Only 10 percent of the colleges in Massachusetts have cooperative student teaching programs similar to those elsewhere, and over 90 percent of the profession desire them.) (Recommendations and a model for implementation are included.) (SM)
