BALTIMORE (AP) -- President Barack Obama is coming to Baltimore.

The president is visiting Maryland on Friday in his second Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour.

Obama is scheduled to visit an elementary school that provides comprehensive early childhood services. After that, the president will visit Ellicott Dredges, which manufactures dredges and dredge equipment.

He also will visit a community center that helps families get the skills they need to get jobs.

In March, Maryland marked its fourth consecutive month of job growth. The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation says the state has recovered nearly 97 percent of the jobs lost in the recession. Maryland's unemployment held at 6.6 percent in March.
