Fact Sheet: Impact of the President’s 2020 Budget on K-12 EducationEducation Federal Budget
On March 11, President Trump released his Fiscal Year 2020 (FY 2020) budget request outlining his spending priorities for the coming year. The president’s $4.7 trillion budget proposal echoes the administration’s message of reigning in government spending, as it seeks massive cuts across the board. One area that would experience particularly severe cuts under the proposal is K-12 education, which is largely represented by the President’s budget proposal for the Department of Education. Many of these cuts, if enacted, would harm the ability of America’s children to receive a high-quality education.
