    • “I met Kamil Jbeily who heads the Texas Regional Collaboratives for Excellence in Science Teaching at the University of Texas. I visited Kamil in Texas during December, 1998, and met with science educators from throughout the state of Texas. When I returned home, I expanded chapter 9 to emphasize the completeness of programs that research and development must deliver to teachers and teacher trainers.”
