Connecting Productive Schools and Workplaces for a Knowledge Society.
Jones, Byrd L.; Maloy, Robert W.
New England Journal of Public Policy, v10 n1 p57-76 Sum-Fall 1994
Considers three popular educational reforms: enforcing basic academic competencies, professionalism among teachers, and partnerships with business. The authors explain that while effective schools, teacher professionalism, and business approaches to quality and efficiency through teamwork and shared cultural values have much in common, partnerships to reconnect schools and workplaces still get stymied by mistrust and short-term, limited interactions.
