TW, Cisco to help schools get high-tech

Companies unveil networking initiative

Time Warner Inc. has coupled with Cisco Systems Inc. to establish an initiative introducing computer networking technology to New York City public high-school students. The partnership will institute programs in 10 high schools in all five Gotham boroughs that will teach students to design, build and maintain computer networks.

In conjunction with the New York City Board of Education and Cisco, Time Warner will provide resources for high-tech training and education through a regional training facility as well as a support center located at Time Warner’s Manhattan head-quarters.

Address shortage

Cisco’s Networking Academy program is designed to address the current national shortage of info-technology workers and to assist schools in the installation and maintenance of their own networks, the companies said.

“Our support of the Cisco Networking Academy program is consistent with Time Warner’s long-standing commitment to work actively to enhance the quality of education in the communities we serve,” said Time Warner chairman Gerald Levin.

Levin declined to comment on how much money Time Warner would contribute to the program.
