ABSTRACT
The article reports on the study conducted by the National Association of Partnership in Education which indicated that more than 50 percent of school districts have partnerships like parent, business and civic groups to make improved academic performance a program objective in the U.S. The findings were based on the responses of school districts chosen from rural, suburban and urban districts nationwide. The study found that 31 percent of the partnerships surveyed primarily involved direct student support as tutoring and mentoring, job training, career-awareness efforts and student-recognition awards.
