Yesterday, President Obama
travelled to Austin, Texas for the first stop on a series of Middle Class Jobs
and Opportunity Tours. The president will use these trips to highlight some of
the initiatives he put forward in his 2013 State of the Union speech. He spent
his time in Austin visiting Manor New Tech High School; a STEM focused high
school founded in 2007.

Recently the Commonwealth Corporation and the Drexel University Center
for Labor Markets and Policy joined forces to try and understand the
decline in teen employment in Signaling Success: Boosting Teen Employment Prospects.
They found that part of the reason for this decline can be attributed
to teens' poor interviewing skills and workplace behaviors--with the
exception of CTE students.
