There are a numerous moments that shine at the BBB, but coupling with education is one of the most exciting shared moments.

“I’m so pleased to see the education system embrace the standards established by the Better Business Bureau,” says Dale Dixon, president of the BBB serving the Snake River Region. “If we can help students learn the importance of these standards, they’ll leave their respective schools and practice stronger business practices.”

College of Western Idaho, in Nampa, is the most recent college to join with the BBB. Already, Broadview University, Brown Mackie College, Milan Institute, Stevens-Henager College, Carrington College, Guardian College, Northwest Lineman College, Razzle Dazzle College of Hair Design,  ITT Technical Institute, and University of Phoenix-Meridian have embraced the standards.

Good business practices are needed more than ever.

“We need business leaders that are willing to do the right thing,” Dixon says.

  1. Hey There Snakeriverbbb,
    Thanks for your thoughts, Learning to read proficiently is foundational to success in school. The expectations have been set at a national level. No Child Left Behind legislation requires that schools meet a 100% reading proficiency goal by 2014 for all 3rd grade students. Funding has been allocated and is being spent. Our nation spends over $500 billion per year on public K-12 education and billions on special reading programs. A massive amount of resources are being invested.
