U.S. Education Secretary to La. schools: 'Don't take the easy road'

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says Louisiana will receive $10.1 million in the latest allocation of the federal School Improvement Grant program. Duncan is encouraging more than 100 failing schools across the state -- including 24 in northwest and central Louisiana -- to dream up bold initiatives to turn around the schools.
