RI AFL-CIO Teams with Princeton Review

An interesting partnership between the Rhode Island AFL-CIO and the Princeton Review. From the release:

The Princeton Review, Inc. (Nasdaq: REVU) and The Rhode Island AFL-CIO and the Institute for Labor Studies and Research, organized labor’s leading job training and educational program in Rhode Island, announced today that they and The Princeton Review’s wholly owned subsidiary, Penn Foster, Inc. will enter into an agreement to help union members and their families continue their education and advance their careers.

 “This unique partnership will make educational opportunities much more accessible and affordable for working families,” said George Nee, President of the Rhode Island AFL-CIO.  “What will differentiate this partnership is the emphasis it will place on gearing the programs to union members and their families who in these tough economic times have a lot of competing pressures to balance. Through distance learning we will bring the Penn Foster College high quality programs into the workplace, making it much easier for union members to pursue degree or certificate programs while working one and sometimes two jobs.”
