Trump’s First Education Budget

A budget documented dated May 23rd was released showing President Trump’s future education budget plan.

 

The Trump administration plans to cut $10.6 billion from federal education initiatives, which would include college work-study programs, public-service loan forgiveness, and funds for mental health and advanced coursework in schools.

 

The cuts will come from eliminating at least 22 programs. For example, $1.2 billion would be cut for after-school programs that serve 1.6 million children, most of whom are poor.

 

Instead, they plan to invest the budget into creating more options. The budget plans on spending $400 million to expand charter schools and vouchers for private and religious schools, and another $1 billion to have public schools adopt school of choice policies.

 

At this time, we are unsure how these changes will impact the Deaf community moving forward.

A White House official made a statement saying aspects of the budget are “always changing and have not been made final yet.”


The official budget plan will be released sometime next week.
