Apple and REAP Partner to Protect Student Workers in China

Rural Education Action Program (REAP) at Stanford University has launched a project with Apple to assess the quality of vocational schools--the main source of student workers in China. 

"Together we're evaluating the education and internship performance of over 12,000 students representing more than 130 schools, from 2013 to 2014. The data will be used to evaluate the educational quality of each school. We're also developing tools to help human resources managers in supplier factories responsibly and systematically assess the quality of schools as they make hiring decisions," said a report on the Apple website. 

"Making our findings widely available will not only help Apple to selectively partner with good schools, but also allow hiring managers across the industry to protect and educate workers," said REAP co-director Scott Rozelle.
