A federal grant paves the way for additional teacher training in the Okemos School District.
Okemos Schools received a $1 million federal grant on Monday for teacher training academies in the subject of history.
Educators say their skills are suffering in teaching more recent American History.
The summer training sessions will help 60 Mid-Michigan teachers increase their knowledge of the subject.
Last year, only 26-percent of Michigan graduating seniors met or exceeded state social studies standards.
