| The San Diego Unified school board backtracked on a plan to shift all of its federal money for disadvantaged students to the very poorest schools.|
| Shifting the funds was one of the most disputed decisions for the new school board and was intended to address the achievement gap. A similar plan was passed and then scuttled two years ago.|
|What It Means|
| Dropping the plan was the latest in a string of recent school board vacillations on everything from school closures to busing cuts.
