The author expresses her views about the need of the schools in Las Vegas, Nevada to have business leaders in order to progress. She states that Las Vegas' school system is challenged as it experiences overcrowded classrooms, teacher shortages, and less-than-impressive academic scores. She believes that business-school partnerships would benefit the school, its teachers and students, and the business itself. She discusses examples of the things that business members do to support schools.
