The Arizona Department of Education misallocated over $85 million in federal funding over the last four years. This is according to an analysis of education funding data by The Arizona Republic.

The misallocation meant that some schools who needed the funding for special-education and low-income students missed out while other schools got more than their share. 

Here to explain more about how this happened and who is affected is Alia Rau, state legislative reporter from the Republic.
