Learning how much has flowed into Sandy Hook coffers since 12-14-12 is always an occasion for pause. This article from the U.S. Dept of Education is old but revealing.
An excerpt follows (boldface is mine):
“The U.S. Department of Education today announced it is awarding an additional $3.1 million to Newtown Public School District to help with ongoing recovery efforts over the next two school years in response to the tragic shootings at Newtown’s Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. This award, combined with a $1.3 million grant for the 2012-13 school year and a $1.9 million grant for the 2013-14 school year, brings the total awarded to Newtown to more than $6.4 million—one of the largest Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) grants ever awarded.”
The article ends with cheers from all of the usual suspects.
Conspicuously missing is Governor Malloy’s thumbs-up. Too busy thinking of new ways to tax Connecticut residents.
