Chart: NCLB Technology Funds
Under the Enhancing Education Through Technology program, the U.S. Department of Education provides grants to states for educational technology. States can keep up to 5 percent of the grants they receive for administrative purposes, but must allocate half the remaining funds to districts through a formula, and the other half through competitive grants. Funding for this program, a part of the No Child Left Behind Act, was cut by 28 percent in fiscal 2005.
