Md. to Receive $6.7 Million for Education

The money will be used to continue the turnaround efforts in the states lowest performing schools



    Federal education officials say Maryland will receive another $6.7 million to continue turnaround efforts in the state's worst schools.

    The U.S. Department of Education recently announced the federal school improvement grants for districts in the state with chronically low-performing schools. The bulk of that funding has been invested in Baltimore City and Prince George's County in past years.

    Maryland has already received $60.7 million since the program was redesigned in 2009.
