Wireless Generation receives $6 million state grant
Posted by Dr. Terry Stoops at 12:30 PM
As predicted, the state began doling out millions to Wireless Generation, a company that had ties to former governor Jim Hunt. Curiously, Hunt no longer serves on the WG Board of Advisors.
The one-year, $6 million grant will "expand the reading assessments pilot that began in 2009 into additional schools for grades K-3 and for at risk students in grades 4 and 5."
Update: There does not seem to be any hard feelings between Hunt and WG. Hunt and Wireless Generation CEO Larry Berger recently participated in an NBC Education Nation panel discussion titled, “A Fresh Start: Leveling the playing field before school begins.”
