Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Education is faced with problems of declining achievement, high dropout and truancy rates, and low morale among educators (Woodside, 1984). Many school budgets are facing drastic cuts. Yet, business and industry continue to depend on schools to produce graduates with the skills and attitudes to fill specific positions (Shive and Ragus, 1979). While schools look for ways to solve their crisis in education, business and industry try to meet the challenges of technological advances, which depend on skilled personnel coming from the schools (Gilman, 1984). A partnership between education and business appears imminent and sensible as a way of confronting a situation which poses threats to each group.
