Pocono schools should be ready for ‘4.0’ careers


If you are like me, you find yourself interested in interviews of some of the rich and famous. Not the tabloid stuff, but interviews for magazines, on news shows and other mainstream media. I recently read an interview with Daymond John that harkened back to his public high school days.

You know him from “Shark Tank”, as a bestselling author, investor, and business executive to mention a few.

He highlighted for the interviewer (writer for the American School Board Journal, ASBJ), the reason he felt he was so successful and what he believes should be taught to make future generations successful. His high school offered a cooperative education program. Meaning he would go to school one week and work the next alternating the weeks. He felt the real-life experience helped him learn early on business skills that could put his education to work.
