February 13, 2009 1 min read

My colleagues Alyson Klein and Michele McNeil have the latest on the economic stimulus bill. Has anyone waded through the details on ed tech? We are beginning to take a closer look at the specifics and it looks like there is roughly $650 million for it.

Did ed tech get a good deal or was it shortchanged? Give us your take.

Meanwhile, I’m making my way through the summary. Ed Week Asst. Managing Editor Mark Bomster calls the file for the bill, on the House of Representative’s Web site, “a choke-your-computer monster.” Hopefully I will be able to have it fully downloaded by Tuesday.
