Business, Industry, and School Partnerships.
Here's How, v2 n2 Oct 1983
One of a series of practitioner-oriented newsletters, the document provides elementary school principals with information about school partnerships with business and industry. Based on a series of recent reports criticizing American schooling, the article recommends that schools form alliances with business and industry in teaching students, in designing curricula that prepare students for the kind of jobs that will develop, in capitalizing on advances in technology, and in generating new management techniques. Ten already existing school-business-industry partnerships are briefly described. District of Columbia Public Schools are cited as one example of a school district that has successfully enlisted the help of several hundred businesses. In addition, nine techniques for forming alliances between schools and their neighboring businesses and industries are listed. (LH)
