Following infusion of federal pandemic funds, Maryland schools set to receive billions over coming years
After years of complaints that public education is underfunded, Maryland schools will see an unprecedented influx of cash in the coming years, $3 billion in federal dollars and billions more in state and local money.
The additional money is designed help students recover from the learning losses experienced during the pandemic, as well as help build what is supposed to be “a world class educational system” with particular focus on early childhood education, career and technical education in high schools, and support for children living in impoverished neighborhoods. School districts with the highest numbers of economically disadvantaged students and the largest enrollments will receive the most money.
