New Site Tracks Billions in Stimulus Spending on Education, a project of the Education Writers Association with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, lets users track spending on K-12 education from the federal economic stimulus law in states and school districts nationwide. The site currently features data on $62.1 billion in grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, including more than 39,500 grants to more than 12,000 school districts and other education agencies across the country. Among other features, the site shows how districts’ grant information compares with that of other similar-sized districts. Users can compare how fast urban, rural, and suburban districts are spending their money—and they can see if their district is spending stimulus money faster or slower than the rest of the state. The site also lets users upload links to relevant articles, blog posts, and other resources onto pages for each state and school district.
