    Abstract: On February 17, 2009, the American Recovery and 
Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) became law. A major part of ARRA is the 
new State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (Stabilization) program. The 
program provides $53,600,000,000 to States to keep teachers in the 
classroom, prevent the cutting of valuable education programs, and help 
mitigate college tuition increases. Additionally, the Stabilization 
program will provide resources that States and districts may use to 
implement important education reforms, such as launching strategies 
that address inequities in the distribution of highly qualified 
teachers, building robust data systems that allow districts to better 
track student achievement, raising standards and strengthening student 
assessments, and turning around failing schools. We are requesting 
approval of the Stabilization program grant application so that State 
governors may apply for the first portion of these funds.
