Budget Cuts Aid for “Most Needy”

President Donald Trump’s budget blueprint calls for cutting $9 billion from the U.S. Department of Education budget while adding $1.4 billion investments in public and private school choice programs.

Proposed cuts to the department include eliminating the $2.4 billion Supporting Effective Instruction State Grants program, eliminating the $1.2 billion 21st Century Community Learning Centers program, eliminating the $732 million Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) program, cutting $3.9 billion in leftover funds from the Pell Grant program as well as “significantly” reducing the Federal Work-Study program.
