Corporate Involvement in Public Schools: A Practitioner-Academic's Perspective


by Larry Cuban - 1983

The author uses his experience with the business community while serving as superintendent of schools in Arlington, Va. between 1974 and 1981 as a point of a departure for a brief historical analysis of corporate involvment in public schools and the unresolved issues that persist in the current passion for increasing private-sector participation in public schools. He also examines the critical role the business community plays in generating confidence in schools and the importance of educators' striking a balance between external and internal interests.
