Hopkins gets $250,000 to start Miami program


BALTIMORE -- The Johns Hopkins University Center for Social Organization of Schools has received a $250,000 grant to install one of its programs, "Roots and Wings," in three elementary schools in Miami.

The project will be a national field test for the program, which is designed to restructure schools to assure that all students achieve world-class academic standards.

The Hopkins-Miami project will be funded by the Knight Foundation of Miami, which also announced yesterday that the Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick will receive $250,000 to collaborate with Gallaudet University in a project to strengthen the teaching and learning of deaf students.
