The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is granting $2.5 million to develop four North Carolina high schools into models of student achievement.

It will be a joint program of the University of North Carolina and the Gates-funded New Schools Project. The UNC system will get $1.7 million dollars.

Two Learn and Earn schools are housed at community colleges or universities and allow students to graduate with as much as two years of college credit.

Four Learning Lab schools will be paired with a UNC campus and its education programs, which will help develop the schools. The goal is to create four highly effective, high-profile schools that will push other schools to become more innovative.
