Who Will Suffer From President Trump’s Proposed Budget?

March 23, 2017

A nprEd Higher Ed column highlights key points from President Trump’s proposed “skinny budget”, that has deep cuts to education but offers very few specifics in the budget outline. If passed, the budget will have 13.5% percent or $9 billion in cuts to the U.S. Department of Education including the elimination of AmeriCorps and support for after-school programs. These programs are particularly valuable to students whose families don’t have access to resources, as after school time is often when students are most distracted and adversely affected by home life. President and CEO of Communities In Schools, Dale Erquiaga, explains that the proposed budget cuts “threaten the nation's most vulnerable schoolchildren" that receive much need services. It would also severely impact CIS to deliver much needed services. Learn more here.
