I read an interesting article in the paper today that the New York City borough that was home to some of the biggest careers in the ad industry is now going to the home of a new advertising high school. The New York City Department of Education has approved the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media which is expected to be up and running by September 2008. Organizers hope the school will get young minorities in to a career in advertising which has long been criticized for its lack of diversity. Who knows maybe the next great ad mind will pull a LeBron James and will take over the industry straight out of high school.
