Public School Partnerships
In forming partnerships with clusters of public schools in the Hudson Valley, Los Angeles, and California's Central Valley, the MAT Program at Bard College has created fully integrated professional learning communities (college program, partner school, apprentice teachers) inspired by the professional development school model.
Learning to Teach with Partners in the Public Schools
Bard College and the MAT Program have modified the concept to support change in the public schools by improving teaching and learning relative to public secondary school students, student teachers, and educators at the public schools as well as at Bard College.
The apprenticeships that MAT students serve in the program's partner schools exceed what more conventional programs demand. MAT students are embedded in public schools throughout the year, allowing for daily interaction and experience in the classroom.
The faculty of the MAT Program is committed to supporting the initiatives of participating public school teachers and their schools. The MAT Program encourages public school teachers to engage in the reflection that is necessary for them to become better educators and, therefore, leaders in the improvement of education and schools.
