As the budget makes brutal cuts to public education spending, it allocates $500 million for charter schools-this represents an increase of 50 percent over the current charter school spending by the federal government.
President Donald Trump's upcoming education budget will propose steep cuts to federal education programs - around $10.6 billion - and move some of the savings to charter schools and their related programs, according to a draft of the budget obtained by The Washington Post. In that position, she has continued to push for her beloved school vouchers, touting "choice" as the preferred option to "actual services" for children. "They just don't get it", the president of the National Education Association said in a statement issued May 18. Federal help for educating Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students and gifted students are killed.

And though funding will remain for Pell Grants-these serve lower-income students who require financial aid-over $700 million would be eliminated from the Perkins loan program, which many disadvantaged students turn to to help cover the cost of their education. Second, a new grant program would send $1 billion worth of Title I funds to school districts that allow students to attend the public school of their choice, a practice known as portability. For one thing, this budgetary trick is not a zero-sum game of strictly cutting dollars from other areas and giving them to school choice programs.
This proposal, often called "Title I portability", was proposed by Republicans during the Obama administration and met significant opposition from Democrats. In fact, she has demonstrated an open hostility to public education, and a desire to destroy public education by using taxpayer money to subsidize private, religious schools. Rather than a research endeavor, this additional money sounds more like it's for a marketing program. The budget would also reduce funding for the work-study program, which allows students to work their way through college, by $490 million. But for students pursuing advanced degrees, the proposed budget makes life considerably more hard.
