Submission + - Microsoft To Educate North Carolina High Schoolers (

gtall writes: From the article: "Microsoft said Tuesday that North Carolina has become the first US state to implement Redmond's Microsoft IT Academy Program for its public high schools — 628 in total. The program offers students and teachers the latest Microsoft software for classrooms and labs, Microsoft e-learning materials, discounts on courseware, access to Tech Net, and marketing resources to help promote the institutions' association with Microsoft, along with certification in Microsoft technologies."
