Correction to the September 7 Issue of Straight A’s

Reporting on the Fiscal Year 2010 Labor, Health and Human Services (HHS), and Education appropriations bill, the September 7 issue of Straight A’s noted that Senate Appropriations Committee included a provision directing 40 percent of School Improvement Grants program to be used to turn around the five thousand lowest-performing secondary schools, including the nation’s “dropout factories,” where 60 percent or fewer high school freshmen progress to senior year on time.

Instead, the text should have said that the committee directed states to spend at least 40 percent of School Improvement Grants onimprovement activities in middle and high schools, including the approximately two thousand dropout factories. The Alliance apologies for this error and regrets any confusion it may have caused.
