School-to-industry pipeline for Md. students

November 23, 2015
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced Monday a commitment to bring IBM's successful P-TECH model—a six-year program in which high school students receive specialized training and instruction, a free two-year college degree in a STEM field, and a job opportunity after completing the program—to four Maryland schools beginning next fall. Johns Hopkins University has expressed interest in serving as a partner for the program. "Our interest is grounded in a desire to bolster the health of our community and create clear and credible pathways to good jobs right here in Baltimore," JHU President Ronald J. Daniels said at the announcement at Baltimore's Dunbar High School. "We know the ways that meaningful work can provide dignity and independence, and as an enlightened anchor in this city, we altruistically want to support those aims."
