Education Partnerships in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools. Survey Report.
Heaviside, Sheila; Farris, Elizabeth
This survey primarily examined partnerships between public schools and outside sponsors in 1987-88. Only entities whose primary focus was not elementary or secondary education were considered to be outside sponsors. The survey specifically focused on the number of public schools participating in education partnerships, the number of partnerships, the ways in which they were initiated, the types of support they provided, areas for which support was targeted, and the types of support and target areas for which principals would prefer to see increased private support. Frequencies were tabulated for the number of public schools participating in education partnerships and the number of partnerships. In addition, percentages were tabulated for the number of schools and students participating in education partnerships and the types of partnerships in schools. Percentages describing the 1987-88 demographic characteristics in schools participating in educational partnerships were collected according to geographic region, metropolitan status, instructional level, size of school enrollment, and percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. Nineteen tables and the survey form are provided. (JAM)
