Feds grant $20 million to expand college access

The Gates Foundation has earmarked $3.6 million of the grant money to be used for remedial training.

A group of 26 college faculty from 16 states will forge an online community aiming to boost the number of educators teaching remedial lessons in two-year schools.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced in December that it would donate $12.9 million in new educational technology funding for community colleges, including the creation of a national certification for teachers of remedial college courses.
