Education & The American Jobs Act: Creating Jobs through Investments in Our Nation's Schools
Executive Office of the President
On September 8, 2011, the President proposed the American Jobs Act to Congress, including investments of $25 billion to renovate and modernize at least 35,000 of America's public schools; $5 billion to upgrade infrastructure at America's community colleges; and $30 billion to keep hundreds of thousands of educators in the classroom. This report documents the need for Congress to take decisive action on the American Jobs Act, and provides detailed estimates of the benefits each school district in the country can expect to receive with passage of the American Jobs Act. These critical investments will create jobs now and improve the physical condition of the schools that teach and train future workers for the jobs of the twenty-first century.
