School systems are constantly seeking ways to offer practical and effective in-service reading programs for their teachers. One plan that has been working in the New Haven public school system is the Cluster Plan. This plan is used for staff development and involves taking a small cluster of three or four schools with similar problems and offering practical in-service programs on a released-time basis.
