730 US schools trying to reinvent themselves
from The Associated Press via The Washington Post
The federal government has enticed 730 schools across the nation to reinvent themselves this school year, and nearly a third have chosen the most difficult paths to get a piece of the more than $500 million set aside for transforming schools where too many children are failing to learn. "This is tough, tough work, but it's desperately needed," U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said. Most of the schools fired their principals and changed their entire approach to learning this school year, while others replaced much of the staff.
