The Obama administration stimulus package includes $105.9 billion for education.
Key Items:
$13 billion Title I
$12.2 billion Special Education
$650 million Innovation Grants
$7 billion Rural Broadband Access

A big disappointment for supporters of educational technology was the 11th hour slashing of EETT funds from $1 billion down to $650 million. This amount does represent an increase over past allotments but falls well short of projected needs to prepare our students to join the 21st century workforce.
