As a partner to America's public schools for almost 90 years, Scholastic believes that the funding for education in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is good for schools and good for the country. Effective and efficient use of funds is a shared responsibility. To help school and district leaders nationwide to navigate this near-doubling of Title I and IDEA funding, Scholastic has developed an ARRA Information Portal, updated regularly as news about ARRA becomes available.
