ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) has allowed for a larger education subsidy in the budget for Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania Edward G. Rendell approved a reduced budget that included additional funds for precollegiate education, including early-childhood education programs. Some programs, such as tutoring and educational technology programs, received funding cuts. Conflict between Rendell and Pennsylvania Republicans resulted in approval delays.
