A Community of Believers. Fourth Anniversary Report.
Odom, Boyd D.
This report describes the Atlanta Partnership of Business and Education, Inc., a community-wide organization that promotes the improvement of education through the collaboration of public schools, colleges, and businesses. The paper is in three parts. Part I provides an overview of the Partnership's history (since it was granted a charter in 1981) and purposes. The organization's goal is to improve the quality of life for the people of their area by improving their educational level, and its function is to disseminate materials and provide technical assistance on a local, state, and (most recently) national level. The nine points of the organization's national position are tabulated. Part II reprints the Second Anniversary Report (first published in 1983). This discusses the group's underlying philosophy, lists important participating organizations and individuals, and describes the Partnership's activities as those of a kind of brokerage firm, offering communication, coordination, and consultation to school-business partnerships. Part III assesses the current status of the Partnership. Objective statistical data from 1984 are compared with 1982 data, and recent developments are summarized. Included in appendices are 1982 and 1984 organizational charts, programmatic charts, and lists of officers, participating organizations, and Atlanta Board of Education members. (KH)
