President Barack Obama will visit an experimental New York City vocational school to praise it as a model of a public-private partnership.
Obama will deliver a speech and meet with students Friday at Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-Tech), which was born out of cooperation between the city’s Department of Education, the City University of New York and IBM.
Students attend the schools for six years, from grades 9-14, meaning they do two years of college work in addition to the four years of high school, which have a heavy emphasis on computer science. Obama mentioned the school during his State of the Union speech earlier this year.
Did they say computer science? Maybe he can recruit some of the kids there to help fix his shitty ObamaCare website. But in reality, this is all just cover for his main agenda.
After his event at the school, Obama is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for Democratic congressional candidates.
