  • Washington - Secretary of Education of EE. UU Betsy Devos today announced a new online portal that clearly shows whether the states, local educational agencies (LEA), and higher education institutions (IHES) are using the Aid, Relief and Economic Safety Law of Coronavirus Help, Relief and Economic Security (Cuiders). The education stabilization fund of $ 31 billion (ESF) destined to follow student learning during the pandemic.

    The portal captures the prizes and expenses reported as of September 30, six months after the enactment of the City Law. The interactive data map and other information tools can be found at Covid-relief-Data.ed.gov. Of the $ 13.2 billion and the Emergency Relief Fund of Elementary and Secondary School (ESSER), which was granted to the 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. - $ 1.6 billion, or 12% of the total had been spent. Eight recipients had spent less than one percent of their prize. Of the $ 3 billion assigned to the Governor Emergency Education Relief Fund (Geer), a total of $ 535 million, or 18%, had been spent. Thirty-four governors had not yet spent more than one percent of their assigned funds.

    The Department also granted a total of almost $ 14 billion in grants through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (PEER) to more than 5,000 higher education institutions. By law, approximately half of these prizes must be distributed to students in the form of emergency financial aid grants. At the end of September, the institutions had spent $ 9 billion, 64% of the total.

    "The law of cusions was approved to provide schools with the resources they needed to protect students and teachers and ensure that learning continues," said Secretary Devos. "We awarded the Law of Quick Money Cusions. This portal now provides transparency in what happened next. States that neglect their obligations to provide full-time education, even if they complain about the lack of resources, they have left a significant sums of Money on the bank. There may be valid reasons for States to be deliberate in the way ACT resources pass, but these data make it clear that there is little to support their affirmations of being poor in cash. "

    In New York the state, for example, less than 0.1% of ESSER funds have been reduced.

Kentucky, which has more than $ 170 million available, closed schools for several weeks. Meanwhile, Iowa has spent most of its funds, while most schools of their schools for person learning.

    Secretary Devos added: "Higher education institutions did a much better job and especially appreciated their clear efforts to ensure that their students received the resources they meant for them."
