ASCD’s Quick Take on the Trump Administration’s Education Budget

05/25/2017 11:55 AM | Michael Simkins

President Trump’s FY18 budget was officially released yesterday. Unfortunately, the funding program details are consistent with what we’ve been hearing generally about the drastic cuts to education programs.

Despite all the rhetoric about the importance of teachers to student achievement, ESSA Title II would have its $2.1 billion for professional development and class size reduction funding completely eliminated in FY18. This comes on the heels of a nearly $300 million cut to the program in the final FY17 budget that was enacted in April. Also targeted for elimination is the $1.1 billion for the 21st Century Learning Centers (after-school programs) and all the funding ($400 million) for the new Title IV well-rounded education program that supports academic subjects, health and safety, and education technology.
