Over $1 billion invested in early learning today

Ed Central
Over 30,000 Children to Benefit from Preschool Development Grants

At a White House Summit on Early Education today, President Obama announced the recipients of two sets of federal grants targeting early learning. The grants come at a time when momentum continues to build across the country for supporting and expanding early learning opportunities, including universal Pre-K.

In addition to the grants, non-profits and the private sector pledged more than $300 million to support he effort.

Scholastic was one of those organizations. We proudly committed to providing $1 million in books and professional learning opportunities for the recipients of both sets of federal grants.

It was a great day for young children!
