The W.K. Kellogg Foundation will spend more than $43 million over the next five years to help better prepare thousands of young children for school at eight sites throughout the country. While the foundation did not seek out applicants in states that are struggling to maintain what they have been spending on school readiness efforts, the new aid comes as economic conditions are leading to cutbacks in such programs.
