PRESIDENT’s Proposed FY20 Budget Presents Challenges for Public Education System
NASP issued an immediate press release on March 12, 2019
The proposal has an 8.5 billion cut to federal education funding and eliminates 29 programs.
Area’s of concern include: Underfunding Title I and IDEA, Eliminating The Student Support And Academic Enrichment Grant (ESSA, Title IV Part A), Expanding School Choice Options, Eliminating Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and Propose Cuts to Medicaid.
Please join NASP’s advocacy by contacting your Congress people to ensure that FY 20 federal appropriations maintain critical investments in education to provide a high-quality public education, in an environment that is safe and supportive for all students.
