      Congress cuts $191 million from educational technology
      The weekend before Thanksgiving, Congress passed the Omnibus Appropriations
      Bill that funds a number of departments of the federal government, including
      education. While education funding is up about $1.4 billion overall, the
      Educational Technology State Grants part of Title II D, the section of No Child
      Left Behind related to educational technology, was cut by $191,841, 000. This
      is a 27.7% cut in the money that goes to states for local grants to fund
      educational technology. This is also the money that is used by many state
      departments of education to support numerous technology and education initiatives
      throughout the states.
