Summary

This report offers a description of the development and current status of the British teacher center as a vehicle for in-service teacher education and curriculum reform in the primary and secondary schools of the United Kingdom. In addition, the report examines the applicability of the British teacher center model to American teacher education and school reform. The British teacher center is a facility providing space, materials, and equipment in which a) teachers engage in curriculum planning and development activity and receive instruction pertinent to the design, development, and implementation of primary and secondary school curricula; b) the products of local and national curriculum development activities are exhibited; and c) teachers convene for purposes of relaxation and refreshment. The centers serve approximately 1,000 teachers and are located to afford teachers easy access during or after school hours. A number of full-time and part-time staff are employed for the purposes of administration, instruction, technical assistance, secretarial/clerical assistance, and custodial care. The budget is provided by the local school district from public funds; the centers are governed by an advisory committee including teachers, school administrators, college and university faculty, and teacher center administrative staff. Teacher participation in the center program is voluntary. This report concludes that the British teacher center model has relevance for American school reform and teacher education. (DDO)
