The Stimulus Plan and Education

Stimulus Plan could reshape U.S. education policy

From the International Herald Tribune

The federal investment in education would more than double under a proposed stimulus package pending in Congress -- which includes $150 billion in new education spending -- changing the federal government's role in education. U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said the money will prevent hundreds of thousands of teacher layoffs nationwide, and money also will go to support early childhood education, repair aging school buildings and improve special-education programs.

A school administrator's stimulus plan is a latte between breaks.
