Grants to pay for additional training for American Indian educators

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The federal government will spend close to 2-point-5 (m) million dollars in Oklahoma over the next year to train teachers and principals for American Indian schools.

The U-S Education Department grants have been awarded to the University of Oklahoma and the Cross Cultural Education Center in Tulsa.

The Cross Cultural Education Center will receive 1-point-3 (m) million dollars. O-U will get 1-point-1 (m) million dollars.

The Cross Cultural Education Center will use its grant money to recruit American Indian education students. Students would get a year of tuition paid and assistance with licensing fees if they agreed to teach at a school with a high percentage of American Indian students.

O-U will use its grant to provide fellowships to 30 American Indian students to complete a 12-month master's degree program in school administration.

They'll be able to become principals after completing the program.
