The Obama administration has announced that six states have won a combined $280 million in grants to improve early learning programs for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
This is the third time these early learning grants have been issued. Fourteen other states were previous winners. The winning states must show a willingness to carry out comprehensive improvements to programs focused on children from birth to age 5.
Details were expected to be released later Thursday about what the winning states proposed to do with the money.
