Threat to federal education spending

April 17, 2017

On March 16, 2017, President Trump released his so-called “skinny budget”, which, although short on details outlines extreme cuts to several agencies.   In all, the budget proposal sends us backwards in our attempts to help all citizens and hurts low- and middle-income Americans, and the most vulnerable among us, the most.  Included in those departments which faced a dramatic – almost crippling – reduction in federal funding is the Department of Education. 

For more information on the proposed cuts, as well as information about what you can do, please see the attached Action Alert.
