Grow Your Own Teachers describes the evolution of a local school reform movement in Chicago that now serves as a model for change in schools and teacher preparation programs across the country. Grounded in the grassroots organizing tradition, the Grow Your Own (GYO) teacher initiative involves collaboration between community-based organizations and colleges of education in preparing community members to teach for change in their local schools. Incorporating rich stories and the perspectives of foremost teacher educators, students, and community leaders, this book offers an alternative framework for teacher education that will provide urban students with the education they deserve. It will also provide adult community members with an example of higher education that can lead to a rewarding professional career.

Essential reading for anyone involved in school reform, this important book:

  • Shows how to put into practice a community-based social justice oriented approach to teacher preparation.
  • Examines the role of parents in shaping school reform efforts.
  • Includes a chapter by Gregory Michie describing teachers of color working for change in their neighborhood schools.
  • Includes a chapter by Linda Darling-Hammond looking at how GYO compares to other educational reform efforts.

About the Author:

Elizabeth A. Skinner is assistant professor in the Bilingual Education Program, Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Illinois State University. Maria Teresa Garretón is professor and chair of the Department of Teacher Education at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Brian D. Schultz is associate professor in the Department of Educational Inquiry and Curriculum Studies at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.

Review:

''Never before have we had so many young children entering schools populated by teachers who reflect neither their race, language, nor the communities from which they come. The Grow Your Own Teachers (GYO) model directly addresses this void, and Skinner, Garreton, and Schultz's new work provides an inspirational blueprint through which to navigate the inception and development of an initiative to cultivate local wisdom to affect change in schools.'' --Teachers College Record
