A Look at Federally Funded Education Programs

The federal government accounts for approximately 9 percent of the country’s total investment in K-12 education (state and local sources provide the rest). The, 151 different programs that this 166.9 billion dollars funded (over FY 2006, 2007, 2008) - included a variety of goals and were administered throughout the country in different ways. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released their Overview of K-12 and Early Childhood Education Programs. This report to Congressional requestors, covers fiscal years 2006-2008, and addresses the federal expenditure on K-12 education, the characteristics of federally funded programs, and to what extent these programs complete evaluations. This report is a great tool for getting an overview of the programs funded by the federal government in the recent past, and to what degree those programs sought to determine their effectiveness.
