ORLANDO - Two school districts in Georgia and Florida have been named finalists for one of the nation's most prestigious education awards.
The winner of the 2014 Broad Prize for Urban Education will be announced Sept. 22, receiving $750,000 in college scholarships. The runner-up will be awarded $250,000.
The organization noted it's the first year only two finalists were named out of 75 eligible, with the review board expressing disappointment "with the overall progress of urban school systems."
Gwinnett County Public Schools earned the prize in 2010.
