ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's opinion on the allocation of $115 billion for K-12 education, as announced by the U.S. president Barack Obama under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. She informs that this will come on top of $60 billion a year that the government already spends on education. She opines that the new funding will not create jobs or give the economy an uplift and says that a major portion of this will be to cover operational costs for local school districts.
