As reported in Gazette.net, eighteen of Maryland’s jurisdictions will benefit from a federal education grant designated to improve the recipients’ pre-kindergarten programs.
A total $15 million will be distributed from the U.S. Department of Education to all of Maryland’s schools systems. . . announced earlier in December by U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) and other federal lawmakers. . .
“These funds in the federal checkbook will ensure that Maryland preschoolers are getting the very best care, to help support their development and prepare them for school,” said Mikulski in a news release. “This is a down payment on Maryland’s middle class families, on our children’s future and on our nation’s future.”
