Now What? Using Federal Aid for an Equitable Education Comeback
Now that the federal government has distributed billions of dollars in aid to states and school districts affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is time to make plans to use those funds — fairly, effectively, and responsibly.
We took a deep dive into how states are planning to spend their federal dollars and what advocates need to do to ensure that states and districts focus on equity as students return to the post-pandemic classroom.
This workshop is part of a semi-annual series run by the Alliance for Resource Equity for a national audience of state-level advocates and policy professionals.
