Tomeka Weatherspoon of Mountain Lake PBS takes us to an upstate school that’s an educational alternative designed to give students productive options other than college.[\videocaption]
 
An experimental education model is being tested to meet the demands of a tough job market. Schools are more intimately collaborating with businesses to configure curriculum based on the needs of employers. Upstate, supporters of the upcoming Adirondack P-TECH program are hoping the business partnerships and tech-heavy curriculum will help deter youth unemployment and keep recent graduates in the North Country.
