Governor Doyle joined with his counterparts from NY, MA, NJ and OH in a conference call outlining their priorities for a stimulus package. The request includes $250 billion for education (including higher education) over the next two years.
I can’t find details of any specifics except a disturbing mention from Doyle that there should be a requirement that states spend at least as much as they had in 2006 on education. I don’t think taking steps backward is the way to go.
President-Elect Obama gave vague lip service to education in his radio address this week.
