Formulating Effective Inter-Institutional Partnerships: A Policy Analysis Model.
Antelo, Absael; Henderson, Richard L.
The need for educators to recognize school/business partnerships and interinstitutional collaboration in a perspective generally shared among corporations is the focus of this paper. An overview of school/business partnerships is followed by a brief description of cooperative efforts that illustrates a shift toward more collaborative approaches. Some liabilities associated with current partnerships are discussed and a rational model for the development of effective partnerships is presented. Based on mission, purpose, and policy analysis, the model is composed of two main dimensions--strategic and operational. Recommendations are made to develop collaborative rather than cooperative efforts and to make educational goals a priority. An advantage of collaboration is that it allows both organizations to share in a product/service not achievable as separate entities. Four figures are included. The appendix provides guidelines for performing a mission analysis. (12 references) (LMI)
