Michigan researchers use $5 million grant to study early literacy law
2016 law goes into full effect next school year
MICHIGAN – Michigan researchers are using a $5 million federal grant to study how an early literacy law gets rolled out and its effect on students and educators.
The Michigan Education Research Institute announced the five-year U.S. Department of Education grant on Friday.
Researchers are particularly interested in how the 2016 law, which goes into full effect next school year, affects third-graders being held back if they lag in reading.
