President Barack Obama is delivering the commencement address at a Massachusetts high school that once was so outdated it nearly shut down.


He says he wants the rest of America to learn from Worcester Technical High School.


Obama says the Class of 2014 has learned how to take engines apart and put them back together, run a restaurant, build a house and fix computers. He says in addition to a great education, the graduates are leaving with the skills they need to start their careers.


He says those skills will also help make America stronger.


Obama says the graduates are an example of what's possible when leaders stop talking about giving young people opportunity and actually provide them with what they need to get ahead in life.
