Grants to support English language programs in gateway cities
Recent state grants will support English language learning and early career education programs in Massachusetts Gateway Cities. More than $3 million will go to the state's 26 Gateway Cities to be used in school districts to help close the achievement gap and prepare students for careers after high school. Receiving $195,000, Holyoke was one of 12 cities awarded continuation grants for English Language Learners Enrichment Academies. Democratic State Representative Aaron Vega of Holyoke says these programs are particularly important in Gateway Cities because they have a long and continuous history of being homes to immigrant families coming to the areas for work.
