Arizona has been awarded $1 million from Gov. Doug Ducey’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund to provide vulnerable students in the state with the highest education opportunities by innovating new education techniques.

A report from the Center for Education Reform (CER) said the state grant money will be made available from Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding provided by the federal government.
