District-Charter Collaboration Grant Implementation: Findings for Teacher and Principal Surveys
Publisher: Washington, DC: Mathematica Policy Research
Jan 04, 2016
- Across the cities with schoolwide grant activities, about half of respondents in the schools collaborated with educators from the opposite sector. Across cities with grant activities that targeted individuals, more than three-quarters of grant participants collaborated across sectors.
- Most respondents reported that the training they received in their grant activity was useful or very useful for their current job, they applied the activity information in their school, and they shared the activity information with others in their school.
- Nearly all respondents reported that inadequate time dedicated by their school to collaboration and inadequate opportunities for collaboration made cross-sector collaboration more difficult.
- Respondents viewed local foundations, businesses, and community groups as promoting cross-sector collaboration, whereas competition, political divisions, and teachers’ unions may hinder it.
