Trump administration wants to cut $7.1 billion to Education Department

The Trump administration is wanting to diminish the Education Department’s funding by $7.1 billion in comparison to what it had been given last year, as an element of next year’s proposed budget.

The budget proposal recommends eliminating 29 programs, including after-school and summer time programs for students in high-poverty areas, among other activities.

The budget proposal is unlikely to pass through through Congress – especially with Democrats in charge of your house, however, it really is a glimpse to the Trump administration’s priorities going in to the next fiscal 12 months.

In a statement , Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said the proposed cuts reveal “commitment to investing taxpayer dollars sensibly and efficiently by consolidating or eliminating duplicative and inadequate federal programs.”
