My DC contacts say "the fix is in" to cut education funding and increase tax cuts in the stimulus package in the conference committee. I don't know the basis for that, but let's hope that's not true.
Education has already taken some hits in the stimulus package. I wish someone would explain to me how spending money on education, which gives people jobs, improves school buildings, puts more teachers and resources classrooms and gives us a more educated populace, is not a perfect example of "stimulus."
