Dealing with the Bush recession

I'll give Arne Duncan his due here. 325,000 ed jobs saved by the stimulus.
Of course, counting jobs that were saved can be a squishier proposition than counting jobs that were created. Teachers have been laid off in some areas — and budget officials say that there would have been more layoffs without the stimulus money — but it is difficult to say with certainty how many teachers would have been laid off without that money.
