South Bronx’s failing schools to receive a $6.4 million aid

With ten failing schools slated to close in the Bronx, the Helmsely Trust, a charity foundation founded by hotel billionaires, Harry and Leona Helmsley allocated $6.4 million to aid under-performing schools in South Bronx. As a part of its education initiative the fund will help students from an early age all through college. It includes support for teacher and principal training, summers programs and cultural enrichment programs. About $4 million will fund the Bronx schools and educational programs directly covering around 113 public and charter schools within Community School Districts 9 and 12, reports NYDailyNews.
