P-TECH Ready to Put Partnerships to Test

When students from the Pathways in Technology Early College High School — or P-TECH in Brooklyn — graduate today with an associate degree as well as their high school diplomas, it will be much more than a formality, according to founding principal Rashid Davis.

“You are at the beginning of — I’m going to call it — an educational revolution,” Davis told some of the soon-to-be graduates at a celebration last week.

Indeed, the 34 graduates — from the inaugural and a few successive cohorts of P-TECH in Brooklyn — are on the cusp of a growing movement in American education that enables students to graduate from high school with a no-cost associate degree.
