A Manager's Handbook to Partnerships: How To Set-Up, Run and Maintain Partnerships. Partnerships in Education Journal.
Adams, Don, Ed.; Snodgrass, Paul, Ed.
With America's technical base eroding to those countries with more desire and ingenuity, a concerted effort must be made to encourage the brightest, most talented individuals to take on the most demanding and technical challenges that lie ahead; but this is not happening to any great extent. As the horizon is scanned for help in the nation's growing education crisis, it is useless to search out the Federal Government. With a burgeoning national debt, faltering banking system, and laissez-faire attitude, the government is in no position to help. Yet the answer lies at home: business. Business has the need for qualified employees, the desire to accept community challenges, and resources to make a difference in the education system. Containing seven chapters, this handbook paves the way for business and educators to form partnerships enabling cooperation in programs of mutual benefit. Topics covered within the chapters are the concept of partnerships, designing a partnership plan, business-education partnerships, Pittsburgh's Partnerships In Education, Nashville's business-education partnership program, and World Book's national Partners in Excellence classroom reading program. Forms and ideas for implementation of an adopt-a-school program are appended. (Author/KM)
