Spending bill boosting education funding clears Congress, heads to Trump
from Education Week
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is very close to knowing how much money her department has to spend in the next fiscal year. The House approved a spending package that includes fiscal 2019 funding for the U.S. Department of Education. The legislation, which the Senate passed, includes several increases for programs such as Title I, special education, a big block grant that districts can use for creating safer schools and education technology, and charter schools grants, among others. The legislation now heads to President Donald Trump for his signature.
