Academic Journal
The authors introduce this monograph issue. The monograph illustrates how grants, in this case the Carol M. White Physical Education for Progress grant, can foster a collaborative effort between a university and a school district. The research represents a partnership between a large school district, its physical education coordinator and a group of its teachers in an urban context. The authors note a job well done on the part of Bonnie Tjeerdsma Blankenship, leaving the senior coedtior position.
