AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to  creating  the  empire
  state internship program

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares that secondary school students who may be interested in specif-
ic  careers  have  little  or  no opportunity to explore those interests
beyond the classroom.
  The legislature also finds that students who gain practical work expe-
rience through internships generally  become  more  committed  to  their
academic  fields,  more  serious  about  their  course  work,  and  more
constructive contributors in the classroom.
  The legislature further finds that  internships  provide  exposure  to
advanced  technologies  and  equipment  not  available in the classroom.
Students learn about the competitive nature of job markets and  what  is
needed to prepare themselves to make career choices.
  Therefore,  the  legislature  declares  that  students  interested  in
exploring opportunities related to their specific  career  interests  be
eligible  for  internships  and deserve recognition that exemplifies the
students' scholastic achievement.
  S 2. The education law is amended by adding a new article 12-B to read
as follows:
                               ARTICLE 12-B
                     EMPIRE STATE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
SECTION 565. SHORT TITLE.
        566. DEFINITIONS.
        567. ADMINISTRATION.
        568. WORK-BASED LEARNING COORDINATION.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
