The reported budget for the Department of Education shows that President Trump and Secretory of Education Betsy Devos don't think that public education is important. They have cut billions of dollars from our already struggling school system and programs that help working parents get by!
This budget proves that they don't want to give our children the opportunity for a better life through education. They have cut back Pell Grants and even work-study. I take that personally. My sisters and I would not have been able to attend college without Pell Grants, work-study, and student loans. Attending college broke the chain of poverty in our family.
In this video, Senator Elizabeth Warren shares the details of Trump's budget cuts in education.
"I just got a preview of the reported budget for the Department of Education that we expect from the Trump Administration tomorrow morning, and it’s an all-out assault on America’s kids, teachers, college students, and student loan borrowers. Here’s the bottom line: The Trump-Betsy DeVos education budget would push opportunity out of reach for countless young people, and we can’t let that happen. It’s time to fight back."
Yes! It's time to take a stand for education and a secure future for our children and America.
