The Economic Stimulus and K-12 Education – Where did It Hit the Mark and Where Did It Fall Short?
Web-based Event
September 27, 2011
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM   (Eastern)
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which pumped an unprecedented $100 billion into K-12 education, was intended to help schools weather the economic downturn and avert layoffs around the country. But policymakers also envisioned that the one-time infusion would help spur lasting reforms at the state and local level. Now, more than two years after passage of the economic stimulus, it is time to take stock. Did the ARRA work as policymakers hoped? Where did it hit the mark, and where did it fall short? Two representatives from the U.S. Department of Education and a local schools superintendent will examine the impact of the stimulus on the nation’s economy and school reform. The webinar will also be available “on demand” any time 24 hours after the event.
