90.3 WBHM Failing schools can flounder for years. But occasionally a school will buck the trend and turn things around. Today, in part three of our Southern Education Desk series Turnaround Schools, Annie Gilbertson reports from the Mississippi Delta, where a former failing magnet school has made the biggest gains in test scores of any school in the state.


The Southern Education Desk is looking for more Turnaround Schools. Have you or anyone you know been a part of turning a school around? We’d love to hear from you.
