Lawmakers push plan to protect school jobs from pandemic cuts
from Education Week
Amid stalled coronavirus relief negotiations, leading Democrats on a congressional education committee unveiled a proposal they say could safeguard up to 3.9 million education jobs threatened by the pandemic and address the effects of interrupted learning. Alarm bells are ringing in school districts across the country about the state of their budgets in an economy hamstrung by the coronavirus. Some states have already made cuts to K-12 funding, but analysts say many of the worst effects of the pandemics on education funding are still to come. Education groups have been warning Congress about this issue for months.
