A student team was formed to determine student and local area business partner interest in having student teams conduct “Field Studies” that had value for both the businesses and the students as an educational experience. The students found that interest was high from both businesses and students, and reported their findings, conclusions and recommendations to the school district.
The students recommended that such a program be implemented at the two district high schools. Unfortunately, however, the school district concluded that it had neither the resources nor the interest in pursuing such programs. While the value of the Field Study experience from the perspective of the students was high, there was considerable disappointment by the students and several local area businesses that the school district did not see fit to create and implement such a program.
