U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona is urging school districts across the nation to use federal funding to ‘reimagine’ education as students and teachers work to overcome challenges in the classroom.
“The federal government, our role this year is just as important as in the middle of the pandemic. We want to make sure our kids are coming back to school and are given the opportunity to catch up. They missed a lot the last couple of years,” said Cardona.
The American Rescue Plan allocated nearly $130 billion to education.
