Today’s TIME Magazine cover story on IBM’s P-TECH-model school in Chicago is an across-the-board validation of everything that we and our partners in education and government are working to achieve:


  • Transforming America’s approach to education and employment through innovation
    and leadership
  • Contributing time, technology and expertise (not just cash) to affect meaningful and sustainable change
  • Placing the needs of our clients – young people anxious to learn and succeed – first

The story of Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy on Chicago’s South Side, and the Pathways in Technology Early College High School in Brooklyn, New York is the story of a groundswell movement to break the cycle of poverty, rescue a generation (and a nation) from an uncertain future, and blaze a pathway to success that others can follow.

While the success of IBM’s P-TECH model has not been overnight, so much has happened so quickly that the momentum of the movement feels unstoppable:

Be sure to read and share this great TIME Magazine article that shows how enthusiastic teachers, great IBM mentors and a great partnership among IBM, the Chicago Public Schools and the City Colleges of Chicago (and a similar set of partners in New York City and State) are making a difference for their communities while serving as examples for
the nation.

Stanley S. Litow is IBM’s Vice President of Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs and President of the IBM International Foundation. Mr. Litow is a former Deputy Chancellor of the New York City Public Schools.

After all, the price is really a very big consideration for internet connected computers.

An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write more on this topic, it won’t be a taboo subject but typically people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers agcdfagbegad
