Abstract: On February 17, 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) became law. A major part of ARRA is the new State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (Stabilization) program. The program provides $53,600,000,000 to States to keep teachers in the classroom, prevent the cutting of valuable education programs, and help mitigate college tuition increases. Additionally, the Stabilization program will provide resources that States and districts may use to implement important education reforms, such as launching strategies that address inequities in the distribution of highly qualified teachers, building robust data systems that allow districts to better track student achievement, raising standards and strengthening student assessments, and turning around failing schools. We are requesting approval of the Stabilization program grant application so that State governors may apply for the first portion of these funds.
