Schools are also a focus (COVID-19 issues) as many struggle to remain open for in-person learning — but a lack of money isn’t the problem. Much of the $190 billion that Congress authorized for schools earlier in the pandemic has yet to be used. In a majority of states, less than 20% of the federal money had been spent by the end of November, according to data from the US Department of Education.

Why? My guess? It’s a leadership and management issue, terms not synonymous with the bureaucracy found in government. I suppose you might suspect misuse of funds in there too?
