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.

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

figure that she doesn’t even have to bust her ass for at the gym.
