Congratulations to our friends and neighbors in Gwinnett County Public Schools! Yesterday, they were awarded the prestigious Broad Prize for Urban Education and receive $500,000 in college scholarships for members of the class of 2015. Large urban districts receive this prize when they demonstrate that they are shrinking the achievement gap among low income and minority students while also showing the strongest performance and improvement in student achievement in the country. This prize is a big deal!
Congratulations Gwinnett – we are proud of your accomplishment!
