The Business Leader's Guide to Partnerships for Education Reform. A Strategic Perspective.
de Lone, Richard H.
This guide presents the steps necessary to create and pursue a strategic perspective on improving the education system. The emphasis is on generating change in the classroom, and the guide focuses on districtwide school/business initiatives with the goal of basic reform. The guide is organized in six sections that cover the following: (1) the importance of strategy--why local partnerships?; (2) developing strategy--first steps; (3) from vision to action--the game plan for change (developing an action agenda, business as an agent of work force development, and summarizing the action agenda); (4) from latent to legitimate power; (5) organizing the partnership for effectiveness; and (6) evaluating results. The guide also lists 15 references and has two appendixes: a list of the organizations representing initiatives cited in the report and a list of 20 information resources for school-business partnerships and educational reform.
