Paletta, Angelo; Candal, Cara Stillings; Vidoni, Daniele
Education and Urban Society, v41 n4 p469-488 2009
The 20-year partnership between Boston University and the school district of Chelsea, Massachusetts, came to an official end in June 2008. Although the partnership is by many measures successful, the continued success of the district will depend on how well Boston University is able to share with stakeholders management techniques and the intellectual capital that the university helped to accumulate and produce. This article discusses how the partnership provided for Chelsea's future by working with stakeholders to promote student achievement and to capitalize on a network of private and nonprofit institutions to improve the school system. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure and 8 notes.)
