President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama addressed the students and faculty of the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) in Brooklyn, New York, today to spotlight the school, its teachers and administrators, the architects of the program, and its partners.

Opened in September 2011, P-TECH is a collaboration among the New York City Public Schools, The City University of New York and IBM. An open-admissions, grades 9 – 14 institution, P-TECH provides a rigorous academic and workplace skills curriculum leading to a no-cost associate degree in technology and preferential consideration for jobs at IBM. The P-TECH model has been so successful that five similar schools have opened in Chicago; four more are planned for New York City; and New York State will rollout 16 new P-TECH-model schools in 2014.

Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a
little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
Any tips? Cheers!

You are so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read something like this
before. So nice to find someone with a few unique thoughts on this subject matter.
Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This website is something that
is required on the internet, someone with a little originality!
