Anonymous donors have offered four year scholarships to in-state public universities to any student who enters Kalamazoo Public Schools in the ninth grade or earlier, effective for at least the next 13 years. From the Detroit News:
The scope of the Kalamazoo program, however, is remarkable: The district has 10,300 students, a number that could grow with Thursday’s announcement of the scholarships.
Some in Kalamazoo talk about the fund as helpful for businesses seeking to attract families to Kalamazoo; native Kalamazooer Dale confirms that this could also help pull families back into the city and into the public schools – often seen as key to helping America’s urban cores.
