Grants to provide U.S. schools with more medical services
July 28, 2011
Educators know that teaching is easier when their students are happy and healthy. According to the Huffington Post, the federal government is now looking to support medical care in the nation's schools.
Through grant money set aside by the Obama administration, U.S. schools will see improvements to their on-premise medical care, reported the news provider. In all, the grant money will total $200 million, which will be dispersed to schools across the country over the next two years.
"We know that if kids aren't healthy then kids can't learn," said Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in an official statement. "This unprecedented investment in school-based health care will bring communities closer together and help children succeed in the classroom."
One key to healthy students is proper education about nutrition and sickness prevention. Therefore, teachers may teach these critical concepts to students with technology devices, such as an e-reader, a personal wellness-themed computer game and a classroom projector.
The media outlet stated that the grants will eventually reach a total of 800,000 students in the United States.
