Examining AMSP Partnerships: Increasing Capacity for Distributed Leadership


The AMSP has funded more than 50 Partnership Enhancement Program grants as a means of initiating and furthering partnerships between K-12 and higher education institutions working to address local mathematics and science education challenges. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect and activities of 10 PEP awards during 2005-06 in terms of leadership and overall structural characteristics that lead to successful outcomes. The underlying hypothesis of this study is that "distributed" leadership, that is, leadership responsibilities that are shared across institutional levels, provides an ideal structure for promoting and encouraging teacher leadership and successful university-school partnerships.
