How To Form and Operate a Local Alliance. A Handbook for Local Action To Improve Science and Technology Education.
Livermore, Arthur H.; And Others
The growth of local alliances (partnerships of business, industry, labor, professional associations, educators, and other concerned groups) is evidence of a widespread public concern for improving the quality of science and technology education. This document defines the concept of local alliances and discusses aspects of the founding and operation of an alliance. Topics include the composition, needs, goals, priorities, funding, programs and projects, evaluation, communications and publicity of these organizations. Appendices include: (1) conference participants; (2) resources from other organizations; (3) consultants; (4) a list of the members of the Triangle Coalition; (5) excerpts from "Building Alliances for Science Education"; and (6) a questionnaire for local alliance information.
