(Cleveland)- During the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Obama talked about schools like Cleveland's MC2STEM (m-c-squared-stem) high school, a collaboration between the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and GE Lighting.

GE's Andrea Timan was on WTAM 1100's Wills and Snyder in the Morning to talk about the school, in which students learn more about science, technology and math by learning from GE employees.

Students do much more hands-on work than in a regular public school, and in many cases, students have actually worked with GE engineers who are developing products.

Timan says they have a 94 percent graduation rate, and the graduates have a very high rate of earning college scholarships.
