PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – The Acting Secretary of Education for the Pennsylvania Department of Education joined Mike Pintek to talk about the issues of budget and education. Carolyn Dumaresq ED. D. has been with the Corbett administration since the beginning where she was previously the Deputy Secretary for K-12.
The two addressed the big issue of the stimulus money, the “error-money,” that the federal government gave to the state to help school districts. Initially the money was supposed to be used for something immediate but instead the schools used it as supplemental money and were even more shocked when the money was gone.
