    Makes a great deal of sense to have this kind of collaborative. The best way for Businesses to have employee’s that fit business needs is to be a working part of their education.

    Education left strictly to educators will not provide that benefit. Remember when all the shops and horticulture classes were eliminated in favor of classical educational classrooms? Now we have a shortage of trade level employee’s that are being filled with undocumented aliens or drop-outs from the school system.
