The article considers the impact that the global financial crisis, which began in 2008, has had on education finance in the U.S. It is noted that school districts in many states had to implement budget cuts as did states that reduced government aid to education in order to deal with their own budget crises. The U.S. federal government provided funds for education through the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the way that stimulus money was spent is discussed.
