Can Business Save Education? Strategies for the 1990s. The Heritage Lectures.
Allen, Jeanne, Ed.
Business leaders realize that the nation's schools are increasingly unable to graduate the kind of workers needed to keep the United States competitive with other nations. To examine some of the solutions American business has advanced to solve the problems in the schools--including innovative partnerships between business and communities--The Heritage Foundation brought together business and public policy experts for a day-long conference. This document reveals their deliberations, which focus on the future role of American business in public education. Proceedings included five panel discussions focusing on the following topics: "Panel 1: The Corporate Perspective"; "Panel II: Business and Education--An Abused Partnership?"; "Panel III: Building Community Alliances--A Neighborhood Perspective"; "Panel IV: Improving Public and Private Education"; and "Panel V: Business and Public Policy".
