School-Business Partnerships: Understanding Business Perspectives
Badgett, Kevin
School Community Journal, v26 n2 p83-105 2016
School-business partnerships have been shown to enhance educational experiences for students. There has, however, been limited research demonstrating the priorities and perspectives of for-profit business leaders on those partnerships. In order to address that gap, the researcher interviewed business leaders in two different areas of Texas. After reviewing interview transcripts, the research identified seven themes that emerged in two distinct constructs. Interviewed leaders reported that relationships, communication, trust, and the future of students are important considerations within a construct of collaboration and common purpose, while return on investment, integrity, and responsibility are important within the construct of results and follow-through.
