Defend Your Public School from the Trump/DeVos Budget Debacle


Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and her favored school choice policies have faced fierce criticism, but this hasn't stopped the march to choice and the defunding of public schools.
A copy of the White House's preliminary budget proposal has been released, and it contains a $9.2 billion cut to the Department of Education. $400 million will be spent to expand charter schools and private and religious school vouchers. Their budget sets $1 billion aside to steer public schools toward choice-friendly policies. Funding for college work-study programs would be cut along with public-service loan forgiveness. Hundreds of millions of dollars that our schools now use to reduce class size, and provide mental health services for students would also be cut.
Make sure your members of Congress know that you want them to defend public education from Trump and DeVos's hostile budget.Defend Your Public School from the Trump/DeVos Budget Debacle - Network For Public Education:
