All 93 staffers at Rhode Island's Central Falls High School who were fired in February have been reinstated under an agreement ratified by the teachers union Monday that aims to turn around the struggling school. Under the agreement, teachers will work longer days, attend more training and allow the school's new principal to make staff and schedule changes as needed. Teachers will receive an additional $4,800 for the extra duties. Despite the resolution, some students and educators say the situation was handled poorly and that other schools can learn from what happened at Central Falls.
