In the Education Jobs Fund, Congress set aside approximately $10 billion for states for public education for 2010-11.  You can read the legislation and administrative guidance on the U.S. Department of Education’s website under Education Jobs Fund.  This money is extremely important for Texas public schools.  We urge school boards and superintendents to call upon the Governor to request Texas’ share of this money before the September 9 deadline.
