AbstractThis is a qualitative research study dealing with the perceptions of educational leaders concerning the use of partnerships with the business community by schools in Newfoundland and Labrador. This study explores the role of the educational leader in securing, monitoring and evaluating school-business partnerships. It also delves into the perceptions of educational leaders regarding the efficacy of school-business partnerships in such areas as viability, the necessity of partnerships and the consequences of entering into such partnerships. The data for the study included the existing body of literature and several individuals who agreed to be interviewed for the purposes of this study. An examination of the data was conducted into the relationship between the body of literature that exists in relation to this subject and the responses of the educational leaders at various levels of governance who have had experience dealing with this issue. -- The data revealed that educational leaders in this province with experience in this area are in favour of these relationships. They were aware of the issues and controversy surrounding the issues of school-business partnerships. They acknowledged the potential hazards, but preferred to demonstrate that they were a viable and necessary component of a school today. They stressed the need for sound and careful planning, and for all stakeholders in education to co-operate in facilitating the desired outcomes from public education.
