"People are always learning and we want to make sure that we embrace that when they come back to schools," said Beth Brown, Albany Tech Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator. 

"We have to change, so that we'll be viable and I think that's what the Governor is encouraging us to do," Anthony Parker, Albany Tech President.
