Education and the Stimulus Package
While specifics are slim, it looks like the much discussed economic stimulus package that will be taken up by Congress in January contains a school renovation package. But the National Governors Association is pushing hard for flexible block grants to states including a $250 billion package for education. Sounds to us like the stimulus package might become a political football full of pork. Tough stuff during a severe budgetary crisis at the state and local levels.
