"Adopt-A-School:  A new kind of partnering opportunity"

A Conversation with John C. Whitehead (former Cochairman, Goldman Sachs)

In this conversation, former Goldman Sachs Cochairman John Whitehead explores a range of opportunities for private corporations to work successfully with local schools.  The conversation draws upon his experiences in encouraging public-private partnerships in New York, and introduces far-reaching new "Adopt-a-School" ideas that can benefit schools and businesses alike, given their mutual stake in the success of students and jobseekers.  Participants in the conversation include Josiah Lee Auspitz, a scholar specializing in the philosophy of institutions, and Mark Frazier, president of Openworld.
