Three federal grants for early education featured on U home page
Three federal grants to Minnesota and the U for early education—Race to the Top, Promise Neighborhoods, and Investing in Innovation or "i3"—are featured on the University of Minnesota home page today in "Three-pronged push for children." In December, the three grants totaling $88 million from the U.S. Department of Education were announced.
The support will allow experts at the University and numerous partners to turn the early-education landscape for thousands of children statewide into something resembling a level playing field. CEHD faculty Megan Gunnar, Scott McConnell, Arthur Reynolds, and Amy Susman-Stillman are quoted.
