Missouri’s programs for disadvantaged students who are still struggling with reading by the time they’re third graders is getting a big federal boost. The federal Education Department is sending $108-Million to Missouri. School districts that have a lot of children having trouble reading will compete for those funds for the next six years. The money will be used to provide more teacher training and to hire reading coaches. The money coming to Missouri is part of the federal “No Child Left Behind” law.
