This book suggests a range of possibilities for business-education partnerships and provides the practical information necessary to implement and replicate them. Following the foreword, preface, and acknowledgments, a chapter describes an educational partnership and the various levels of involvement. The main section offers detailed information on 50 educational partnerships from 17 states and the District of Columbia. Exemplary programs are organized by major program activity: Adopt-a-School; career awareness and leadership training; job readiness; mentoring; school reform and curriculum enhancement; special awards, incentives, and scholarships; teacher training; and tutoring. Five anecdotal success stories, based on personal interviews, are also presented. Three indexes list programs by activity, by company, and by program name. Appendices contain a resource directory and a list of National Association of Partners in Education (nape) contacts by state. (Lmi)

The third report from a comprehensive Unesco study, this document traces the history of the application of computer-based technology to the book distribution process in the United States and indicates functional areas currently showing the effects of using this technology. Ways in which computer use is altering book distribution management activities are examined, including ordering, order processing, delivery, payment processing, and warehouse functions. Following a brief introduction, the first section discusses the general use of computer technology, changes in book distribution procedures, and the context and methodology of the report. Section II describes the activities of individuals, companies, and organizations whose efforts have brought about technological change in book distribution in the United States. Section III analyzes the various component steps in the distribution chain and the organizations involved in them; areas are highlighted which have already experienced change due to technological advances and areas where such changes can confidently be predicted to occur in the near future. The final section outlines the various types of organizations which participate in the introduction of new technologies to the distribution process, identifies individuals in key leadership roles, and suggests emerging trends for the future.
