We Love Schools

Dec 2, 2019

We welcome Superintendent Rick Smith of the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, which is in Bellefontaine, Ohio, northwest of Columbus, Ohio.

We talk about the importance of working with the business industry to form effective partnerships. This is definitely something that's taking on a life of its own. A lot of businesses are looking for workers. We've covered that extensively in our podcasts, but particularly here, we focus on building partnerships.

Businesses are now coming to schools, career centers, vocational education, saying "We need workers. We want to help you help you train our future workers, what can we do to give you the tools so we can get a workforce."

As much as we talk about jobs and the economy, the bottom line here is it still many jobs are left unfilled because businesses cannot find workers who have the skills necessary.
