from THE Journal

The Senate Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations Subcommittee has unanimously approved a funding bill for fiscal year 2018 that includes $68.3 billion in discretionary funding for the United States Department of Education, a $29 million increase over the previous year's budget. The bill increases funding for Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants — a provision of the Every Student Succeeds Act calling for $1.6 billion in funding and known as Title IV — by $50 million to $450 million. The SSAE is a "flexible formula block grant to help support activities to provide students with a well-rounded education, including STEM education; ensure safe and supportive learning environments; and use technology to improve instruction," according to information released by the subcommittee. more
