Statement on President Trump’s Proposed Education Budget

Critics of the Obama administration’s Department of Education repeatedly targeted what they saw as federal “overreach” into local districts. Now the Trump education budget guts funding for programs that are popular and effective at the local level, while only adding significant new funding to one area—trying to influence local decisions about school choice.

This proposed budget is a greater assault on local control. It needs to be called out as such from both sides of the aisle. And we need to restore commonsense investments in our public schools.
