School Supt. Frances Gallo plans to fire all the teachers in the city’s only high school as part of a major overhaul ordered by the state education commissioner. The Providence Journal has reported on the plan since it was announced.

Tonight, Anderson will speak to CNN's Education Contributor Steve Perry and Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) tonight.

Here are some statistics on Central Falls High School, one of the schools that will be affected by Gallo's plan. It has been classified by the state Department of Education as a chronically underperforming school for seven years. The most recent information on the school:

808 - Number of students

74 - Number of teachers

96% - Students in poverty

47.7% - Graduation rate

55% - Proficient in reading

7% - Proficient in math
