Forging Links that Bind: Quality Partnerships between Educators and Industry.
Cornell, Sylvia Ryce; Ziegenhals, Robert
Productive partnerships between educators and business result in better educated students and a more productive work force. Although the training industry has increased over the last decade, funding for public schools continues to diminish. Partnerships benefit both education and industry. The current emphases upon quality in business and institutional effectiveness in education are the bases for common ground. Partnerships should be investigated at the high school level in order to rescue at-risk students. Employers pursue activities such as Junior Achievement, tutoring, mentorships, and lectures to select classes in order to strengthen cooperation. Volunteerism is an important factor in forming partnerships. Successful partnerships are like successful marriages: if proper care and nurturing are invested in these relationships, the payoff is long and rewarding and each partner grows and flourishes.
