Senate education spending bill would increase aid for school safety, charters
from Education Week
The Senate's bill to fund the U.S. Department of Education would keep overall spending virtually flat, although grants for charter schools would get a relatively small increase, as would programs intended to improve school safety. The legislation to fund the Education Department would provide $71.4 billion in discretionary funding to the agency for fiscal 2020, which starts Oct. 1. Another winner in the bill is the Student Support and Academic Enrichment grant program — officially known as Title IV Part A in the Every Student Succeeds Act — intended to provide more well-rounded school experiences to students.
