Two internal candidates are breaking the trend of keeping superintendent searches veiled in secrecy.

Eric Nadelstern, once considered a candidate for chancellor, is stepping down after nearly 40 years in New York schools.

Wisconsin's Milwaukee Public Schools today announced it has won a five-year, $20 million grant from the GE Foundation, the philanthropic arm of General Electric Co., to overhaul its math and science curriculum.

Infighting and a leadership breakdown on Atlanta's school board led an accrediting group to put the city's high schools on probation today.

The school board voted last year to end a policy of school assignments based on socioeconomic status.

The standards would lead to meals with less fat and sodium, but the changes may come at a cost, district officials say.

A new majority on the North Carolina board has done away with school assignments based on socioeconomic diversity, but critics wonder if the new plan will lead to resegregation.

John Deasy, a former superintendent and executive with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, was named to be the district's next leader.

Joel Klein could earn up to $4.5 million in salary and bonuses in his first year, according to reports.

The mayor's management of the 409,000-school district has shut out parents, says a group of public school advocates and the city's teachers union.
