School Improvement Grants
Rachel Norton wrote on her blog about the State DOE announcing recently that San Francisco was chosen for millions of dollars from the School Improvement Grant program. Many of the larger school districts around the State were disqualified for not following the guidelines or not committing to all of the necessary reforms.

SF should not have schools that consistently underperform as innovative and forward thinking as we are. Read more her blog here:
