   The President will deliver the main address at the Worcester Technical High School graduation on June 11.  The White House said it is the only high school address Mr. Obama will do this year. The school’s principal Sheila Harrity said in a prepared statement that it was an honor the President has chosen to address the  graduates and that his commitment to promoting equality of opportunity for all will inspire the class of 2014.  The Worcester school has undergone a transformation from one of the worst schools in the state to being held up as model for career and vocational education. The US Education Secretary Arne Duncan visited the school last week.
