WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Michigan is receiving 497-thousand dollars from the U.S. Department of Education to help cover part of the fees for low-income students taking Advanced Placement tests.  Overall, the federal government is awarding nearly 29-milion dollars to 42 states.  Education Secretary Arne Duncan called participation in Advance Placement courses a "jump start" in college for students, challenging them to develop stronger study and critical-thinking skills.
