Trump's ed budget: A 'betrayal' and a 'meat cleaver' to public education
from eSchool News
Under President Donald Trump's proposed FY 2018 education budget, school choice would receive a massive $1.4 billion while the Education Department undergoes a $9 billion, or 13 percent, cut. Overall, the proposed education budget cuts the Education Department's budget from $68 million to $59 billion. Within the proposed $1.4 billion school choice investment, charter schools get a $168 million boost, and $250 million is allocated toward a new private school choice program. Title I funds would receive a $1 billion increase, but the funds would follow individual students should they decide to change schools.
