The need to collaborate to collaborate, creates blocks in the road.

Identity Issues

Balance Professional and Private Life.

Delegating

Balance ("We do so much...good ideas..., [but not enough time to do it all]")

Motorola, International Initiative on Inclusive Education/Rosario, [The Rosario project seeks to]...examine the role of school structural factors (e.g., design of curricula based on monocultural and top down conceptions of knowledge...ideologies about Latino students and their families) mediate the ability of schools to shape educational outcomes. The Rosario project relies on a teacher inquiry group model to understand the social and material contexts in which teaching and learning processes are co-constructed in classrooms for Latino struggling learners...This project aims to answer the following questions: (a) How do structural, social, and cultural factors mediate the work of a teacher inquiry group that is concerned with addressing the needs of Latino struggling learners?, (b) how do structural, social, and cultural factors mediate the impact of a teacher inquiry group on Latino student learning?
