Partnerships between businesses and schools are neglected economic and educational tools, pairings that have the potential to raise student achievement and more closely align the work of educators with workforce demands, a new report contends.

That argument is spelled out in a report released last week, "Business Engagement in Education: Key Partners for Improving Student Success."

The report was sponsored by the Citi Foundation, an organization sponsored by the bank of the same name that seeks to help low- and moderate-income individuals, and College Summit, an organization focused on improving college attendance and success.

The report argues that businesses can play a critical role in helping schools coping with ever-evolving challenges, which include "adapting to shifting policy demands, managing new and expanding roles and expectations, and finding ways to respond to changing demographics and social norms," the authors say.
