The orange caps represent prime recipients of the Education Jobs Fund grants that were awarded between September 1, 2010 and June 30, 2013. The jobs numbers are for Quarter 2, 2013 (April 1 - June 30, 2013) only. The grants, totaling $10 billion, were made by the U.S. Department of Education to the state Departments of Education so each cap has been placed in the respective state capitals.

If a school district is not represented, it may be that the state has not yet distributed all of the funding.
