Washington – Five school groups have been awarded grants by the Education Department to fund pilot programs designed to improve the education of students. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Secretary Arne Duncan announced earlier this week that the department has awarded $120 million for the schools.

Students being able to earn an associate’s degree while working on their high school diploma, retraining for teachers, and laptops that students can take home for their studies are included in the list of things the money will help provide.

Duncan is quoted by the AP as stating to reporters, “These are bold, locally directed improvements in learning and teaching that will improve both student achievement and educator effectiveness… The best ideas in education don’t come from anyone here in Washington.”

As noted in the report, over 200 school districts applied for funding from the Race to the Top program, which was part of the 2009 economic stimulus package from President Barack Obama.
