President Barack Obama on Friday is scheduled to travel to New York to visit a Brooklyn high school, the White House said.

Obama plans to visit Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH), where he will “tour a classroom and discuss the importance of ensuring that the next generation of middle class American workers and entrepreneurs have the skills they need to compete and win in a global economy,” according to the White House.

The president is also scheduled to appear at Democratic fundraisers later that night before returning to Washington, D.C.
