Panel Urges Closer Cooperation Between
Universities and Public Schools

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

High school science teachers returning
to the college lab. College professors
getting tips on training math teachers from
the teachers themselves. School districts
and universities sharing science equipment.

That kind of cooperation between higher
education and public schools -- some of
which already exists -- would bolster
science and math training for America's
schoolchildren, according to a report issued Wednesday in
Washington
by the National Research Council.

"It will be of increasing importance that K-12 teachers understand what
is going on in research science," said Robbie McClintock, who
directs
the Institute for Learning Technologies at Columbia's Teachers
College.
"And research scientists need to be aware that students can make
use of
the tools that they're developing."
