Beder, Harold W.; And Others
A study examined the dynamics of cooperation between public school adult education programs and business and industry. On-site interviews of nine public school adult education (PSAE) directors and ten representatives from the training and development sector of business and industry were conducted, and a survey and two followup surveys were completed by 82 PSAE directors and 85 personnel managers of New Jersey firms. Data concerning the following seven areas were collected and analyzed: (1) the extent of cooperation between PSAE programs and business and industry, (2) factors accounting for the success or lack of success of this cooperation, (3) advantages and disadvantages of cooperation, (4) factors enhancing or impeding cooperation, (5) strategies to establish cooperation and their effectiveness, (6) differences between business and industries that cooperate with PSAE and those that do not, and (7) the most promising areas for future collaboration between PSAE and business and industry. Conclusions concerning these areas were drawn and suggestions were made concerning ways PSAE programs can facilitate cooperation with business and industry. (Volume I of the final report of the Facilitating Cooperation with Business and Industry Project is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
