On Oct. 20, Gov. Larry Hogan, Baltimore City Schools CEO Sonja Santelises, and other officials marked the launch of Pathways in Technology Early College High School, or P-TECH, at Dunbar and Carver high schools. The program, developed by IBM, allows students to take advance-level courses in science, engineering, math, and technology, get paid internships in those fields, and receive one-on-one mentorship with professionals, with the hope of placing graduates into jobs in the ever-expanding tech sector. This past June, The Sun's editorial board hailed the program's "potential not only to fill local employers' need for technically skilled employees but also to grow the work force in a way that reflects Maryland's increasingly diverse population." Grace Suh, who directs education programs for IBM, told The Sun last week that the computing giant sees P-TECH as a way to develop a pipeline of talent. There are already plans in place to expand P-TECH in Maryland, but it's cool Baltimore students got first dibs on these opportunities.
