Obama, Duncan to visit school in Baltimore County next week

February 11, 2011|By Baltimore Sun staff

President Barack Obama on Monday will visit Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology in Baltimore County, where he will discuss his 2012 budget priorities aimed at preparing students "to be competitive in the global economy," the White House announced Friday.

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Jack Lew, the White House budget director, will join the president at the school, which focuses on educating students in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and math, especially through hands-on projects.

In his State of the Union address last month, Obama called for additional investments to train 100,000 new math and science teachers over the next decade, hoping to build on the Race to the Top initiative.
