Stimulus for schools
This is something to keep our eyes on:
Anchorage School District Superintendent Carol Comeau and about 30 other superintendents from urban school districts met with Education Secretary Arne Duncan on Monday while they were in Washington, D.C., for an education conference. They met in the Executive Office Building, Comeau said, mostly to talk about how school systems will spend stimulus money.
"It's a significant opportunity for some significant change that's going to impact -- long-term -- kids, especially kids in poverty." Comeau said.
Sarah Palin still hasn't decided how to spend $115 million in what's known as the "state stabilization fund," money that's supposed to help states balance their education budgets.
It would be interesting to see what Sarah Palin's decisions will be regarding the education of children in poverty...
