IBM and Chicago Launch High School, College, Career in One

IBM experts (NYSE: IBM) (#THINKskills) deliver a strategy for a comprehensive career and technical education system for Chicago that ties education to an economic development strategy. IBM partners with Chicago Public Schools, City Colleges of Chicago and the City of Chicago to create five new grades 9-14 schools that blend high school, college and careers in one. IBM's work in Chicago was informed by the company's experience with similar, bold educational initiatives in New York City at a school called P-TECH.
