About the Contributors
I have spent my career in teacher education, worked in many partnerships, and am committed to improving urban schools. To do this, we must engage in high quality, game-changing work. I have been a long-time follower of the important work done by Wichita State University. This text includes the voices of a diverse group of partnership members, and I am looking forward to seeing this well-written and succinct story in print.

A partnership of shared responsibilities in supporting student teachers between a university and a school district enhances the district’s capacity to retain quality teachers. The lessons learned in such collaborations can become a research supported pathway for school districts in major cities across the country. Hopefully the work found in this text will continue and new understandings will emerge that will guide teacher preparation programs.
