SEATTLE (AP) — The federal government has enticed 730 schools across the nation to reinvent themselves this school year. Nearly a third have chosen the most difficult paths to get a piece of the more than $500 million set aside for transforming schools where too many children are failing to learn.

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Thursday he is fascinated by the choices schools are making about how they want to do change.

The lack of controversy over most of the efforts is in sharp contrast to earlier school efforts, including one in Central Falls, Rhode Island, where a high school's entire teaching staff was fired and then rehired earlier this year.
