"IBM is another corporation attempting to address
business weaknesses through education. In order to address the problem of
finding middle-tier talent, the company started the Pathways in Technology
Early College High School (P-TECH) in Brooklyn, New York. Participating
students can graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree in
applied science. IBM guarantees job interviews to qualified graduates of
IBM-affiliated P-TECH schools, according to a company news release."
