Fed Money To Boost Low-Performing Schools

More than $120 million in federal money is on the way to Georgia to help boost some of the lowest-performing schools in the state.

The cash will be sent to schools willing to adopt one of four dramatic reforms: firing its entire staff, converting to a charter school, replacing its principal, or closing the school entirely.

Every state is getting some money from $3 billion--set aside to help the bottom 5 percent of schools in the nation.
