Abstract (Summary)

The topic of this study is teacher support and professional development offered at urban Title 1 schools. This study compares the teacher support and professional development provided at an urban Title 1 traditional public school to the support and professional development provided at an urban Title 1 charter school. The purpose is to compare the schools and find out from a teachers’ perspective which school supports its teachers better. Teachers were interviewed in order to receive the data necessary to determine which school is more effective at supporting its teachers. The other significant purpose of this study was to suggest improvements that ether or both schools can implement. The results indicate that the traditional school teachers felt better supported and satisfied with their professional development, than the charter school teachers. The findings also present knowledge that can help improve both schools and other schools similar to them.
