Following a brief introduction that defines types of business/education partnerships and outlines their financial and educational benefits for schools, students, and businesses, 24 profiles of existing and effective cooperative programs are presented. Profiles are given a page and a half to two pages of coverage and provide the following information for each program: brief narrative description, basic facts about the school districts served (location, program sponsors, program participation, budget, staffing), objectives, structure, and implementation procedures. Some representative programs included are the following: Arco/Joint Educational Project, Business and Industry Language Arts Project, Career Internship Program, Corporate Action in Public Schools, Mentor Program, Minority Entrepreneurship Program, Step-Into-Business, and Volunteer Career Counseling Project. Following the profiles, four resources are listed: "Baltimore's Adopt-a-School Program: A Fruitful Alliance of Business and Schools"; "Corporate Action in Public Schools"; "It's Working...Collaboration in Career Education"; and "Programs to Combat Stereotyping in Career Choice." For each resource is provided basic bibliographic information, price, short annotation, and the publisher's address. (BPB)
