The Obama administration has released $44 billion, the first round of school dollars from the economic stimulus package.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan made the announcement Wednesday at Doswell Brooks Elementary School in the Maryland suburbs, just outside of Washington.
“It’s critical the money go out quickly, but it’s even more important this money be spent wisely,” Duncan told a group of kids, teachers and state and local leaders in the school library.
