ated with the University. "Part of the
problem is because of the state's inabil-
ity to carry its fair share of protection
costs," Oates said.
Greg Bird, spokesman for the state
budget office, said fire protection grants
are determined based on the number of
state facilities, the value of the facili-
ties and the municipalities protecting
Ideally, the Ann Arbor Fire
Department would have received
$1.6 million from the state in fire
protection grants, Bird said. Instead,
the department was paid approxi-
mately $386,000 in Fiscal Year
2004, he said.
"Fire protection grants have not been
fully funded for a number of years due
to the challenging economy," he said.
Bird said the state is trying to fully
fund these grants. "Governor Gran-
holm attempted to raise the funding by
increasing the liquor markup, but the
Legislature didn't approve it," he said.
Redies said new fire trucks donated
by the University in the past year are
a huge help to a cash-strapped depart-
"We must budget very carefully the
replacement of certain things that the
government requires we replace peri-
Items such as the coats, pants, boots
and breathing apparatuses for each fire-
fighter are expensive to replace without
money from the state and city.
"If we expect a certain amount and
don't receive it, we must find those
funds elsewhere," Redies said. "This is
why we had to reduce our staff."

ers of teachers, provided ongoing professional develop-
ment support and community involvement activities to
schools seeking to achieve a systemic change in math-
ematics education." Moses said the Algebra Project
works to "set up a space where kids can be aware of the
chance to pursue higher education" and to make sure
that they have the resources to do so.
He added that math ability is particularly important
because of the current computer technology age, which
places math proficiency on a par with reading and writ-
According to the Algebra Project, teachers are
trained to use inquiry-based, cooperative strategies for
teaching and are provided with feedback and ideas for
developing new curriculum materials. The project sets
up sites in both urban and rural areas across the South,
West Coast, Midwest and Northeast. Students in the
Algebra Project complete algebra by the eighth or ninth
grade and pre-calculus or calculus by the 12th grade,
according to the organization's website.
In addition to being the president of the Algebra Proj-
ect, Moses also teaches math full time at Lanier High
School in Jackson, Miss. He said he hopes to make an
impact on the national level with the Algebra Project,
"but in order to do that, there is a personal level that has
to be established."
Citing the 11th graders who have been taking math
classes through the program for three years as an exam-
ple, Moses said he feels that the project has helped to
gain the students' confidence and form a true teacher-
student relationship. "Watching that evolve over time in
working with them, there's a very strong satisfaction,"
At the same time, the Algebra Project also strives to
"establish that (inadequate education for young people)
is a national problem," Moses said. "We've been trying
to take the issue of school reform off the education page
and onto the front page."
Moses's extensive experience in activism began with
the civil rights movement of the 1960s. During that time,
he served as a field secretary for the Student Nonvio-
lent Coordinating Committee and helped register black
voters in Mississippi. According to a written statement
from the University, Moses was "attacked and beaten
by law enforcement officials for his efforts."
Moses also taught math at the Horace Mann School
in New York. He then left the country in 1966 to teach
in the African country of Tanzania for seven years,
where he was the head of the math department at the
Same school, a government high school southeast of
Moses's life experience as an activist in promoting
education in underprivileged areas ties in with the val-
ues of the University, said Krenz, special counsel to
University President Mary Sue Coleman.
Krenz said the commencement speaker is nomi-
nated by the Honorary Degree Committee, which
reviews each speaker candidate and submits its
choice to the University Board of Regents and
the president. Krenz that the president picks the
speaker, adding that the president looks for some-
