ATLANTA (AP) - Governor Nathan Deal is giving out $19 million in grants aimed at improving science and math education in Georgia as part of the state's "Race to the Top" program.
Deal announced the grants Monday. The money is going to Drew Charter School in Atlanta, the Teach for Georgia teacher training program and a partnership between Barrow County schools and Georgia Tech.
It's also going to the Knowledge is Power Program teacher fellows program in partnership with Georgia State University and Mercer University and a three-district collaboration between White, Hall and Lumpkin county schools. The state picked the winners out of 70 applicants.
The money is part of the $400 million grant Georgia won last year from the federal "Race to the Top" competition.
