Brock, Barbara, Ed.
This comprehensive resource guide profiles more than 5,000 business-education collaborations across the United States. It is designed to help schools augment their tight budgets, enhance their curriculum, and obtain needed expertise from corporations and also to help businesses find ways to help educators turn out first class, competitive employees. Volume 1 provides a list of the companies in alphabetical order, followed by company profiles that cite persons to contact, foundation guidelines, application procedures, and services offered. An analysis of the programs reveals that nearly one in two programs prepare students for tomorrow's jobs; one in three programs are especially supportive of minorities and women; and one in three programs address current social issues, including Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education, substance abuse, and pregnancy prevention. Volume 2 contains indexes that classify the thousands of support programs available in multiple ways. Laid out on easy to scan grids are the following separate indexes: (1) program involvement; (2) subjects; (3) services; (4) resources; (5) partnerships; (6) scholarships and awards, and career development; and (7) educator training. A geographical index, an industry index, and an index of areas of expertise are also provided. (MLF)
