About this grant
This grant will support Editorial Projects in Education, through "Education Week" and www.edweek.org, to provide in-depth coverage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and offer analysis of the stimulus program’s implications on education for policymakers at every level of public education, from the federal government to local districts. Specifically, this grant will provide support to present: 1) breaking news of federal and state policy; 2) analysis guiding readers through the stimulus program’s rules and regulations; 3) articles on how the stimulus program is reshaping the education debate and setting the national education policy agenda; 4) coverage of specific initiatives as they develop at the state, district, and school levels; and 5) journalism tracking the expenditure of $100 billion in education aid. "Education Week" is the premier education publication and read by audiences such as policymakers, practitioners, advocates, and government officials.
