Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe says a new state program for teachers will make them more aware of employers' needs in today's work place, reports the Arkansas News Bureau. Beebe touted "The Modern Workplace," a program that will take teachers out of the classroom and into the work place to learn first-hand what skills their students will need to ensure successful future employment. Teachers who choose to participate will begin by attending a one-day workshop in which a work place is simulated. They will then tour a group of businesses to learn what skills those businesses prize most in employees. M.C.
