How Are Governors Spending Their Coronavirus Education Aid?

As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the country in March, Congress allocated roughly $3 billion in direct education aid to U.S. governors under the the Governor Emergency Education Relief Fund .

A new analysis by FutureEd and The Hunt Institute examines how states have allocated those funds, and what those spending decisions might say about the educational priorities for each governor.

FutureEd Editorial Director Phyllis Jordan joins CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss the analysis and some implications for policymakers, schools and other stakeholders in the midst of a lingering national recession.
