School to work a big switch
Surely there’s a more efficient way for young people to transition from school to work. Actually, there is.
Over at Lincoln Parish Career Academy, several students are learning how to fit in when they enter the work world through the school-to-work program. They spend the first couple of months of the year learning about interviews, positive attitudes and appropriate work behavior and conduct. After a few months, they venture out during school hours to fill part-time positions at businesses in the community.
