Obama's $100 billion education plan

President Obama plans on involving the government in education funding more than ever before, ushering in "a new era in federal education spending". Obama's stimulus bill will raise spending on Title I schools, special education, and Pell Grants, the most important federal program of aid to college students. The proposed stimulus bill will raise federal education funds to about $135 billion this year, and to about $146 billion in 2010. Other federal agencies would administer about $20 billion in additional education-related spending.
