    P-TECH Playbook Enables Communities to Close STEM Skills Gap

    Date added: 14 Nov 2014

    In response to student deficits in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the IBM-inspired P-TECH school paradigm has grown quickly. These schools blend high school, college and career. IBM’s online playbook (www.ptech.com) can help guide the further establishment of public-private partnerships to create even more P-TECH schools. Begun with one P-TECH school in Brooklyn, NY in 2011, the model could grow to an estimated 100 schools by 2016.
