LPR News Podcast

The Rhode Island Foundation awarded $160,000 in grants to launch the initiative at Rhode Island College
and the University of Rhode Island.
“Our goal is to support this initiative to improve the literacy skills, bilingual capability and academic
success of English Learners across the state. Their educational success depends on closing gaps in
student outcomes and one of the best investments we can make is in the professional development of
teachers and school leaders,” said Neil Steinberg, the Foundation’s president and CEO.
