McKnight Foundation to Fund Literacy Efforts for Early Grades

| 1 Comment

The Minneapolis-based McKnight Foundation has decided to start a grant program to help children in the Twin Cities learn to read by the end of 3rd grade, according to the Philanthropy News Digest and a press release from the foundation.

Often with foundations, as they decide to fund a new area, they stop funding in another area. And this is the case with the McKnight Foundation. The foundation plans to discontinue grants for fatherhood development, parenting skills building, and family economic success.

I'm aware of a number of foundations that fund adolescent literacy; I haven't had an opportunity yet in reporting on the reading beat to learn about those that have a track record of funding literacy in the early grades.

as soon as people reolize this price drop them will start buying, the price always stabalized then goes up, its just a trend I've seen with past rare crashes. Everyone says it wont and then it does. I expect them to go back up, ALOT, with a bit of time, then drop back down to a stable price similar to what it was.
