The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System in Tennessee is looking to widen the pool of industry partners in the district's externship program, in which students spend time at local businesses, learning first-hand the kinds of skills and workplace habits they'll need to develop. "We're looking for your voice. We want our students to graduate and not just be competitive in the Clarksville workforce, but to also be competitive globally," the school system's STEM coordinator, Dale Rudolph, told a recent gathering of regional business representatives.
