"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $150,000 the second year for the Achievable Dream Academy."

(This amendment provides $150,000 the second year for An Achievable Dream Academy which has successfully closed the education achievement gap, one of the State's and Nation's most daunting problem, from 26-30 points throughout the State to 4 points. This has been accomplished through the creation of new and innovative programs, curriculum and teaching methods that are shared with other schools within the local area as well as other school districts. These funds would help the innovative partnership to continue its mission.)
