Federal stimulus funding on the way to Mahoning Valley schools

Published: Mon, March 9, 2009 @ 4:50 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Local school districts will be getting more than $10 million as the first installment in Title 1 stimulus funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Estimates show the districts will receive more than $21 million in total Title 1 funding under the bill’s two-year time frame, but about half of that money will be arriving within the next 30 to 45 days, said Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education.

The first round of school funding will help avert hundreds of thousands of estimated teacher layoffs in schools and school districts while driving crucial education improvements, reforms and results for students.

I'd like to see how this money is being distributed. Is it equal per district, based on students, political favors etc.?

Yes, what a waste to spend 21 million on schools. That's two more months in Iraq.

I completely misread the article. They are going to spend 21 million on the schools and I was thinking Billion. We could never stay in Iraq for that. We spend 35 million a day in Iraq.
