Business-Education Partnerships in California: An Overview and Guide with Selected Case Studies.
This document describes a project that developed a resource guide for information on business-education partnerships in California, using a literature search and telephone interviews, and produced a guide to these partnerships. The project also explored the role of business in educational improvement and reform. Information is presented on the California character in the areas of economics, technology, and demographics, and the impact of those areas on education in the state. The guide, in addition, describes the overall partnership scenario in California. As part of the description, five case studies of model partnership programs in the state are presented to represent the types of involvement business can have in education and their effects on educational reform. The guide concludes that industry, in the form of business-education partnerships, represents a viable force in the education reform process, as it is one of the few sectors in society equipped with the resources necessary to perform the immense task. Business and industry can provide the necessary information, cutting-edge technology, and economic resources to effect significant educational changes. Appendixes include a list of implications for education, two perspectives on the role of business in education reform, and a list of the major agencies and organizations involved. There are 48 references. (Author/KC)
