A few days ago, it looked another stimulus package – one that would provide schools with the money they need, along with support for millions of people – had a chance (see Great News: Odds Are Increasing That Schools May Get Billions In Next Stimulus!).
President Trump shot that down today.

Here are some articles about today’s fiasco:

Not only is this terribly harmful to schools and millions of Americans, there is absolutely no political calculation that suggests this is a smart move. https://t.co/rBuihPxzZQ
