This United Way Worldwide report highlights the voices of everyday Americans concerned about education in the United States. Above all, the opinion was that there is so much acrimony, divisiveness and negativity in our debates on the issues of education. Everyday people are hungry to get past the posturing and get on to doing whatever it takes to set children up for success. While so much attention lately has been placed on schools, the people in this report said that while schools play an important role, communities and indivduals have to step forward in a different way.
This white paper helps nonprofits see the range of ways they can partner with business leaders. The Business Stakeholder Wheel is an easy to use visual that shows the array of roles that businesses can play in community change efforts.
If excellence is necessary for America to continue to effectively compete in the global economy, then there is much work to be done in preparing the next generation of professionals to enter the workplace.
