By Tiffany Miller March 16, 2017

The CEO of Communities In Schools (CIS)  today expressed his deep concern about the proposed budget released by President Trump and its potential effect on the nation’s most at-risk students. The spending blueprint released this morning includes $9.4 billion in cuts to the Department of Education.

“The President’s budget overlooks the fact that children in poverty require a network of support to overcome the adult-sized challenges they face,” said Communities In Schools President & CEO Dale Erquiaga. “Whether it’s after-school programs or programs that put all kids on the path to college, we owe it to our young people to demonstrate that we are all in this together for their future success.”
