IBM scientists could be teaching your kids next year
From Saturday's New York Post: IBM has launched a new project to help up to 100 of its computer scientists become math and science teachers in city public schools. For now, the project will involve IBM employees in New York City and North Carolina before being rolled out nationwide. According to details provided by the company, IBM will pay employees looking to leave their corporate jobs for a teaching assignment up to $15,000 for tuition and stipends while they earn their state certification. An IBM executive, speaking in the East Village, commented on the plan: "We think it's the right thing for business and we know it's the right thing for schools."
