In these times of shrinking budgets, scarce economic resources, intensifying criticism of the results of public schools, and increased demands on schools to provide more than traditional education, educational partnerships can serve as major resources to schools. The objectives of this sourcebook are to provide examples of the multitude of partnerships that exist between schools and other organizations and agencies, and to describe the challenges and potential that educational partnerships provide, and the leadership required for their creation and development. Nine chapters include: (1) "Introduction: Connecting School Communities Through Educational Partnerships" (Paula A. Cordeiro and Mary Monroe Kolek); (2) "Nurturing Partnerships Between Schools and Families" (Roy M. Seitsinger, Jr.); (3) "Partnerships Between Schools and Institutions of Higher Education" (L. Nan Restine); (4) "Strategies for Fostering Partnerships Between Educators and Health and Human Services Professionals" (Ellen Smith Sloan); (5) "Using the Arts to Integrate Knowledge: Partnerships Between Schools and Nonprofit Organizations" (Liane Brouillette); (6) "The Potential for Partnerships Between Schools and Religious Organizations" (Richard D. Lakes and Paula A. Cordeiro); (7) "A University, Business Foundation, and School Working Together" (Betty Merchant); (8) "Understanding the Organizational Dynamics of Collaborative Partnerships: Two Frameworks" (Bob L. Johnson, Jr. and Patrick F. Galvin); and (9) "The Implications of Partnerships for the Preparation and Professional Growth of Educational Leaders" (Paula A. Cordeiro and Karen S. Loup). (RT)
