Summary

Partnerships in education often begin as a way to stretch resources, but then become harmonious, growing relationships. This brochure describes Pennsylvania's Partnerships in Education program, an outgrowth of earlier "adopt-a-school" efforts and a component of Governor Dick Thornburgh's comprehensive reform package. Students benefit by translating learning into the world of work; partners benefit by contributing to the education of their future work force. Partnerships flourish on every scale. Some involve entire school districts and hundreds of students and employees; others pair private partners with a single class or with individual students. Partnerships exist in urban industrial areas and rural regions alike. This brochure provides a representative sample of some of the 2,500 cooperative agreements throughout the state. Each example cited includes a short description and identifies the partners and someone to contact. Programs range from high school journalism and construction projects to a "Generations Together" program involving senior citizens and elementary school children. Another section highlights cooperative ventures between schools and state government agencies. The brochure closes with suggestions for starting partnerships and a list of state agencies to contact for more information. (MLH)
