Collaboration among Schools and Business and Industry: An Analysis of the Problems and Some Suggestions for Improving the Process.
Rath, Susan Wong; Hagans, Rex
Exploring both the meaning of collaboration and the issues associated with it, this paper is divided into five chapters. The first two chapters discuss the need for collaboration and present definitions and issues associated with it. Chapter 3 recounts some of the problems others have identified that are either part of or that affect collaboration between schools and business and industry. In addition, this chapter looks at the advice offered on how to deal with these problems. The relationship between collective bargaining and the collaboration process is developed in the fourth chapter. The collective bargaining model is presented as a way to strengthen and improve the collaborative process. The final chapter reflects briefly on the collective bargaining analogy, presents assumptions that came out of the discussion of collaboration, and discusses the future of collaboration. (LRA)
