Relationship Matters: Negotiating and Maintaining Partnerships in a Unique Teacher Education Program
Teacher education has evolved into a cooperative responsibility shared by universities and schools. This paper examines the relationship development, maintenance, and relational intricacies of a Canadian school-university partnership. Specifically, how the Faculty of Education at Brock University has built a conceptual bridge between the university, the partner districts, and the individual schools. Collectively, the partnership and the resulting preparation program within this collaborative venture provide an alternative model with important considerations for other universities and school systems that are interested in fostering effective partnerships.

In this study, the authors found that as new early childhood teachers enter schools, they interact with teacher aides and parents daily. However, the new teachers do not feel prepared for negotiating these professional adult relationships. These underlying tensions then affect children's development and learning. To address such situations, the authors propose the use of Boal's forum theatre (Boal, 1979) as a performative critical model for early childhood teacher education and support the advantages it offers for exploring issues facing early childhood teachers that may not be commonly addressed in teacher education classrooms.
