IBM Encourages Businesses To Train Teachers

IBM is asking companies to encourage their employees to pursue second careers as teachers. To help things along, IBM will share materials used in its own program.

IBM is asking private companies to encourage their employees to pursue second careers as teachers. The company said that it will share methods, materials and experience from its new "Transition to Teaching" program with other companies. The announcement came at the Business Education Network Summit in the nation's capital Friday.

A 2005 National Center for Education Information Statistics study states that 40 percent of America's public school teachers plan to exit the profession within five years. One-third of high school teachers will retire by then.

IBM will begin a pilot program in January, allowing up to 100 of its experienced U.S. employees to become fully accredited teachers. Big Blue will focus on math and science, but the company is encouraging other businesses to add to all disciplines.
