As families deal with Flint’s ongoing water crisis, the work being done in the schools where they send their children might be more important than ever.

The Michigan State University College of Education has had a long relationship with Flint Community Schools, and that effort was boosted last week by a $2 million grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with MSU College of Education K-12 outreach specialists Dr. Jo Ann Andrees and Dr. Brian Boggs about the Flint Community Schools. MSU has 25 outreach specialists and professors on the ground in Flint, including Andrees.
