President Donald Trump signed the $900 billion bipartisan coronavirus relief package on Sunday.
The negotiated rescue package contained $600 stimulus checks, federal unemployment aid, food and rental assistance, as well as education funding.
“I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed,” Trump said in a statement.
Teachers should be extra vigilant for signs of neglect and abuse when schools reopen, the UK’s leading children’s charity has said, as ministers draw up plans for a post-coronavirus child recovery strategy. The NSPCC has urged the Government to give school staff a crash course over the summer holidays in how to handle disclosures from pupils and how to spot red flags.
The advice comes amid concerns that when children return to the classroom, teachers may be the first front-line professionals they have seen in up to six months.
