With federal coronavirus relief, schools are wrestling with a host of thorny questions. Especially under the new Joe Biden administration, how much federal aid is coming? What rules will govern its use? Most importantly, how can schools spend the funds effectively when reopening schools, improving remote learning, and helping students get back on track?
Join us and the American Enterprise Institute for a discussion on these challenges, moderated by AEI's Frederick M. Hess. Panelists include Georgetown University’s Marguerite Roza, San Antonio Independent School District’s Pedro Martinez, Education Resource Strategies’ Karen Hawley Miles, and Fordham's Brandon L. Wright. This conversation will highlight the urgent issues addressed in Dr. Hess and Mr. Wright’s Getting the Most Bang for the Education Buck (Teachers College Press, 2020), as panelists discuss how schools can spend smartly in the face of unprecedented challenges.
