What is the Nashville Big Picture Business Network?
A 2006 report compiled through surveys of business leaders
found that among those new hires with a recent college degree, ... [what most] lack,
say employers, are basic skills such as reading comprehension, writing and math, as well
as important applied skills such as work ethic and professionalism.
Nashville has a unique, innovative high school where the student attend class only three
days a week! And as this high school completed its fourth year, its first graduating
class accomplished a 100% graduation rate. Of the grads, all but four went on to advanced
education. The four who did not, three went into the military and one went into business -
with his mentor! Thus the secret of this amazing school ... the other two days a week,
students they are working as interns in local businesses.
