CUNY And IBM To Open Unique School In NYC

According to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the City University of New York and IBM will open a unique school that merges high school with two years of college.This will allow students, who will also be first in line for a job at IBM, to earn an associate's degree.

The mayor also proposed to do away with automatic teacher tenure and the state law that requires schools to buy printed textbooks rather than use digital content. "That may be good for the business textbook industry but it's really a
bad deal for our students in this day and age," Bloomberg said.
