Abstract

The 1980s were subjected to pressures for educational reform. Many of these pressures were in direct relationship with the publication of "A Nation at Risk" in 1983. The preparation and training of teachers received the most attention in the reform movement. Many state agencies implemented new programs such as merit pay and career ladders. Today, another wave of reform is underway. The emphasis is now focused on restructuring schools. Educational leaders are now interested in improving the teaching profession. The leaders of state agencies and administrators want environments that help teachers and students grow to the greatest extent possible. This paper will explore the peer coaching program, its purposes, the considerations for a successful program, and the strategies for administrative support of this program.
