Reconnecting Roots: Internships at Big Picture High School
Parents and students alike have lamented the fact that schools seem to focus too much on memorizing answers and not enough on practical, real world experience. The good news is - some schools are trying to change that, by getting back to the idea of apprenticeship-style educations like we had decades ago.
One such school is Big Picture High School in Nashville, Tennessee. Their students spent a good amount of their week at internships in their chosen career field. On “Reconnecting Roots” - our docu-series coming to public television this July - we visited Big Picture High School in order to see what it’s like for these students.
