Educators concerned about Trump's proposed budget cuts
from By: Bambi Majumdar
From June 6:
No one is surprised that President Donald Trump's budget proposal for 2018 includes significant cuts to the Department of Education. The proposed 13.6 percent cut would slice $9.2 billion from the department's $68 billion budget. The biggest portion of that cut is the elimination of a $2.3 billion program for teacher training and class-size reduction. Districts are already worried that slashing aid for teacher development would add to the severe teacher shortage we already face.
