Partnerships between Corporations and Schools.
Barton, Paul E.
This paper provides an overview of partnerships between corporations and schools in the United States. It discusses nine different types of partnerships, their purposes, their leadership, and what each of the parties gets from them. The nine types discussed are the following: (1) employers extending a helping hand in the form of the adopt-a-school movement, management advice, and joint funds in aid of public education; (2) collaborative councils; (3) transition to work programs; (4) cooperative education between employers and schools; (5) vocational education; (6) experience-based career education; (7) partnerhips for economic development; (8) contracting out of occupational training by educational institutions; and (9) industry contracting with schools to meet internal training needs. Recommendations touch on the need for more information about various aspects of school business partnerships. (RDN)
