Michigan receives millions in education grant funding

LANSING (WKZO) -- Low income students in the state will benefit from Michigan’s share of 280-million dollars in federal grant money.

Michigan’s portion comes to about 52-million as a winner in the national Race To The Top Early-Learning Challenge. There are about 182-thousand young children in the state who will be served by this funding.

State Superintendent of Schools Mike Flanagan says while this won’t eliminate child poverty it will certainly help a lot of children get the early intervention they need.
