There's a movement to turn workplaces into classrooms; does it work?


We know that a good education can be the ticket a good job. But for many Americans, conventional school isn't working. Every school day some seven thousand students drop out of high school. Often, what they managed to learn in the schoolhouse has not prepared them well enough for the job site. Workplace U, airing Sunday, November 22 at 10 p.m. on AM1370/FM-HD91.5-2, reports on a growing movement to turn workplaces into classrooms and marginal students into productive workers.
