State to Intervene in Failing Schools

3/14/2008 Fresno, CA Thirteen of these districts are in the Central Valley.

The districts have failed to meet their goals for five years and are facing sanctions for the first time. The state risked losing $45 million in federal funding for those districts, if the board of education didn't approve intervention plans by September.

The governor plans to fund the intervention using $45-million dollars in federal funding. But he's also calling for $4-billion dollars worth of cuts to education.
