Broad range of issues, varies by state/district

Too much theory, not enough practical

Too short

Lack of permission to take chances

Smaller class size for new teachers

Q2. What are challenges of University Program training?

Need a mentoring approach

Action research valuable where available

Needs to be a consideration of transition prior to teacher intake

Non-urban Universities need to somehow expose teachers to realities of Urban Ed

Q3 Can District needs drive local University teaching programs?

Many do; cohorts supported by both University and District

Need more partnerships
