Freedman, Susan; Aschheim, Barbara
This document describes six industry-education partnerships in Massachusetts selected as exemplary and 14 selected as outstanding. They represent innovative and collaborative ways to address dropout prevention, at-risk and special needs students, adult literacy, basic skill development, and enrichment needs of students. Each entry provides this information: contact (name, address, telephone number), participants, target population, and a partnership overview that highlights programs or components of the partnership. The six exemplary partnerships are Alliance for Education, Worcester; Dorchester High School/New England Telephone Partnership, Boston; Honeywell Bull LABB Program, Lexington/Lawrence; Keefe Tech/Toyota USA/Massachusetts Bay Community College, Framingham; MESTEP (Math English Science Technology Education Program), University of Massachusetts/Amherst; and Springfield School Volunteers/Corporate Action Program, Springfield. Outstanding partnerships include: the Intergenerational Learning Program, Agwam/Springfield; Springfield Read-Aloud, Springfield; the Oxford/Digital Connection, Oxford; and the Workplace Education Project, North Dartmouth/New Bedford. A final section lists noteworthy partnerships, in alphabetical order, by city and town. The same information is provided as for the selected partnerships, but in a condensed format. A topical index of partnerships is appended. (YLB)
