CARES Allocates Monies To States Usable For School Bus Hot Spots
Betsy Devos, United States Secretary of Education recently wrote a letter to all 50 governors about education in the time of the Pandemic. She urged them to spend the 30.75 billion CARES Act Stabilization Funds monies allocated to their states to ensure remote education for the students of the United States of America. School buses that deliver access to the Internet so all students can have access to lessons are a segment where this money will be spent.
DeVos advised. “They and their families are depending on your leadership to ensure that they don’t fall behind.” Below is a listing of the State GEER Fund Component of the Education Stabilization Fund for All 50 States.
