Introduction

The Trump Administration has released the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, which lays out a series of proposals and priorities designed to ensure every student has an equal opportunity to receive a high quality education.

Main Digest

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos Issued the Following Statement:

"This budget makes a historic investment in America's students. President Trump is committed to ensuring the Department focuses on returning decision-making power back to the States, where it belongs, and on giving parents more control over their child's education. It also ensures stable funding for critical programs, including Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)."

"The budget also reflects a series of tough choices we have had to make when assessing the best use of taxpayer money. It ensures funding for programs with proven results for students while taking a hard look at programs that sound nice but simply haven't yielded the desired outcomes."

"By refocusing the Department's funding priorities on supporting students, we can usher in a new era of creativity and ingenuity and lay a new foundation for American greatness."

Key Initiatives in the President's 2018 Budget

Creating New Education Options Through School Choice

Maintaining Support for the Nation's Most Vulnerable Students

Simplifying Funding for Postsecondary Education

Building Evidence Around Educational Innovation

Streamlining Existing Programs

Note that because the President's budget was completed before final fiscal year 2017 appropriations action, all comparisons are to the 2017 annualized CR level.
