(AP) Seven cities will split $25 million in education funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.


Philadelphia; Boston; Denver; New Orleans; New York; Hartford, Conn.; and Spring Branch, Texas, are recipients of the grants announced Wednesday.


The cities are among 16 that signed a collaboration compact designed to reduce tension between district and charter schools. The agreement entails sharing resources and best practices.


By signing the compact, each city received $100,000 and became eligible for further funding.


Over the next few years, Hartford will get nearly $5 million and Denver about $4 million. The other cities will receive between $2.1 million and $3.7 million each.


Funds will go toward projects including universal enrollment systems and joint professional development for charter and district teachers.
