GCPS & OCPS Share $1 Million Broad Prize
"... There is no single solution to the challenge of ensuring a world-class education for every child. Gwinnett County and Orange County have taken very different paths. Yet the real winners in both places are the same: children. And both districts offer important lessons for the nation: success is possible anywhere, and getting there doesn't look the same everywhere."
-- Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education
