Trump Virus Funds for Private Schools Blocked by Second Judge

The Trump administration’s move to steer more pandemic relief money to private schools from a $13 billion education fund was blocked by a second federal judge.

Wednesday’s order by a San Francisco judge follows a preliminary injunction issued last week by a Seattle judge. Both concluded that changes in early Julyto CARES Act emergency funding issued by the administration illegally take money away from disadvantaged public schools to give to private schools with more resources and less need.
