President Obama will be making a Friday visit to the Crown Heights high school P-TECH, as the Daily News reports.

P-Tech expandedits six year high school and associates degree program, as we covered in August.

Obama is planned to discuss the importance of giving the next generation of workers the skills they need, but Next City has recently raised the question that P-TECH and its partner, IBM, might be preparing students for the tech jobs most easily shipped overseas.

The program is getting an awful lot of attention without even graduating its first class of students yet. Meanwhile, Brooklyn Tech has been graduating students with a focus on STEM education for 91 years. It has a record 5,525 students enrolled there now. The Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation will hold its second annual celebration in late November.
