Expectations are that K-12 learning will take place in a mix of in-person, remote and hybrid models through the rest of the 2020-2021 school year. While many districts expect to resume full in-person learning in fall 2021, the need for other learning models will remain.

With a backdrop of change and challenge, PreK-12 Policy & Budget Outlook, 2021-2022 provides information, data and analysis on education policy and funding, primarily at the federal and state levels. The most recent information available on funding for fiscal year 2021 and available information on funding proposed for fiscal 2022 are provided.

A main source of the data is the U.S. Department of Education, with additional information from state education departments and state government websites. Other sources tapped for information include Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Child Trends,, Common Sense, Connected Nation, EducationSuperHighway, Ezra, Funds for Learning, J.P. Morgan, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, National Association of State Budget Officers, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Funding and the policies that drive its allocation are important considerations for providers of instructional materials, classroom technology and educational services to consider as they market current products and plan future offerings.
