Who knew that schools were such big profit centers? Apparrently, the Bush-Kennedy education bill that doubled the level of government spending on education worked so well in generating federal revenue and creating jobs that President Obama wants to double it again. That must be the reason this was in the ‘economic’ stimulus bill.
The first round of school dollars from the economic stimulus law is going to states this week.
Public schools will get an unprecedented amount of money – double the education budget under President George W. Bush – from the stimulus law over the next two years.
