Louisiana is receiving $24 million in federal aid for the development of charter schools. The grant, announced by Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings, will allow for widespread use of charter schools in a state where, post-Katrina, the public school system is barely functioning.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded North Carolina $10.4 million to reform the state’s high schools. The money will help build smaller high schools focusing on economic development themes and support the establishment of early college high schools. North Carolina also received $11 million from the Gates Foundation in August 2003. As a result, the state formed the New Schools Project, which continues to make strides in the creation of new, smaller schools.

    I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005 (Enriched EBK)

    I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005 (Enriched EBK)

    by Lauren Tarshis

    Hurricane Katrina is headed for New Orleans, pushing a powerful storm surge toward the low-lying city. Barry's family knows the storm is coming, but his little sister is critically ill and they can't risk evacuation. At first it seems that the Ninth Ward will be safe. But when the levees are breached, the rising waters sweep Barry away from his family. The airwaves are calling it the storm of the century…and if Barry is to survive it, he'll have to survive it alone.
