The Pathways in Technology Early College High School program in Brooklyn, N.Y., has been receiving the attention of state and national education officials, according to Stanley Litow, IBM's vice president for corporate citizenship and corporate affairs and former deputy chancellor of schools for New York City. The high school's model is a six-year program that incorporates a community college curriculum and results in a high-school diploma and an associate's degree in applied computer science. "By working together, educators and employers can prepare larger and larger numbers of students to take the good jobs that we know are available in our city," Litow writes.
