    Default I'd like to know the meaning

    I'd like to know the meaning of the following three expressions.

    1) ready-to-go workforce

    2) district-free school

    3) physical characteristics OR physical character

    I have my own prediction about them, but I'm not sure whether or not they are
    truly correct. So I posted. Thank you in advance.

    Default Re: I'd like to know the meaning

    1) I'd use this where a comapny is going to open somewhere and there a trained workers who can go straight into the jobs.
    2) I'm not sure- open to pupils from anywhere???
    3) Physical characteristics= physical features of someone. Physical character- describes something like a sport and how violent it is.

    tdol, thank you.

    2) I'm not sure- open to pupils from anywhere???

    Yes, that's what I mean. Usually students are meant to go to a school located in their neighborhood, but in this case they can choose any school (in their city or something) they hope to attend.

    Is there any other good expression which stands for this kind of school?
