Arizona groups benefit from federal education grants

Three southern Arizona groups have been awarded federal funds to help students make healthier choices.

The U.S. Department of Education announced the grants Tuesday.

About $740,000 goes to the Santa Cruz Regional School District in Nogales, while $631,000 goes to the Sunnyside Unified School District in Tucson.

Another $225,000 goes to the non-profit Pima Prevention Partnership in Tucson.

The grants are among 56 totaling $27 million that went to school districts and community organizations to implement physical fitness and nutrition programs.

  1. This is a waste of taxpayers’ money which could be more useful either in our pockets (demand economy) or on infrastructure. Teaching “healtheir choices” should be the task of the parents. Oh, I remember now, the family has become declase and single mothers have sole responsibility for the “family”.
