50 Important Things You Can Do To Improve Education.
Kranberg, Susan, Comp.
This book suggests a range of possibilities for business-education partnerships and provides the practical information necessary to implement and replicate them. Following the foreword, preface, and acknowledgments, a chapter describes an educational partnership and the various levels of involvement. The main section offers detailed information on 50 educational partnerships from 17 states and the District of Columbia. Exemplary programs are organized by major program activity: Adopt-a-School; career awareness and leadership training; job readiness; mentoring; school reform and curriculum enhancement; special awards, incentives, and scholarships; teacher training; and tutoring. Five anecdotal success stories, based on personal interviews, are also presented. Three indexes list programs by activity, by company, and by program name. Appendices contain a resource directory and a list of National Association of Partners in Education (NAPE) contacts by state. (LMI)
