14 p. 
Summary

The authors state that educational renewal cannot be broached with the meager funds collected by the U.S. Office of Education; staffing ratios, supplies, equipment, and plant cannot be attended to realistically. However, the teacher center, as it focuses on methods and resource organization, is found to be a useful renewal tool. The authors critique four alternative models of the teacher center: the British model; a centralized bureaucratic model, like the one in Japan; a decentralized model, run by an official board of education agency; and an autonomous model, run by teachers. The latter is found to be the most satisfactory. Basically, it is described as being governed by teachers (with an advisory board from outside the teacher ranks) for teachers and other nonsupervisory instructional personnel. Operated as a nonprofit corporation, it looks to federal and state funds for permanancy. (LP/JA)
