New Grants by U.S. Department of Education
It was a busy week in Washington, as the Department of Education made a flurry of announcements, seemingly intent on pushing ahead on a number of fronts in the face of Congressional inaction. Both the Departments of Education and Defense launched the Learning Registry, a tool that facilitates sharing educational resources. Earlier, President Obama and Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services announced new rules for Head Start. The Department of Education announced the potential grantees for the second round of investing in Innovation - i3 - grants.
