Northwest Elementary School has received a $1.4 million School Improvement Grant through the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.

Northwest Principal Dennis Teel said the money will be used to create accelerated-learning classes, particularly in reading.


“Most of our students start school two years behind, sometimes three,” he said. “This grant will help us in kindergarten through third grade to accelerate learning so they make more than a year’s growth.”

Are you sure about this?

After reading the latest DR editorials I thought the schools were without money. A million-four grant? Must be a typo. This is not consistent with the "War on the Schools or the War on Children or the War on Teachers or the War on Education." I will look for the corrected article tomorrow.

It's a grant, which means it's not part of regular funding. It will go away soon.
