The $825 billion stimulus package Congress is considering includes $142 billion for schools, according to USA Today. The article says that’s more than just about for any other area.
USA Today just shares a few specific items that are included, and I (as I’m sure, everybody else) will be interested in seeing a more detailed analysis.
I learned about this article through the The Opening Bell, an excellent daily email of new articles about current educational issues. It’s from the National Education Association, and is free. You can only receive it, though, if you are an NEA member.
The Opening Bell is on The Best Ways To Keep-Up With Current Education Issues list.
