I love this example of the power of public-private-partnership (P3). The government of Doddridge County in West Virginia is teaming with the local school district and private sector providers to build out broadband capabilities for schools for educational and training opportunities. This is a great example of combining forces to do more than any one of the parties could possibly do on their own - exactly the promise the P3 model can deliver on.
“We do feel like this is a pretty innovative opportunity,” . . .“We are doing all we can to partner with industry and business partners anyway, and so this one kind of just fell in our lap, and I think it has potential to make a huge impact not only in our instruction at the high school, but also could potentially impact some of the career choices and paths of these students and give them opportunity and connections that they wouldn’t have otherwise."
