Abstract:

In the summer of 1989, the Department of Defense Dependents Schools DoDDS began implementing the Study of Teaching, a staff development program for administrators and teachers designed to promote professional collegiality. At that time, RAND began a three-year evaluation of the program implementation in the Germany Region for the Office of Dependents Education DoDDS-ODE. This report documents the evolving implementation strategy, the perceptions of the participants, and whether the schools changed in support of the program goals. The report should be of interest to staff developers working with or within large school systems, as well as education researchers interested in how systemic programs are implemented at individual schools. Force Management and Personnel, Office of Dependents Education, sponsored this research, which was undertaken in RANDs National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research development center supported by the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Within RAND, the Defense Manpower Research Center conducted the study.
