'Tell Congress to defend public education from Trump's hostile budget, and reject efforts to create federal incentives for school choice policies. . A copy of the White House's preliminary budget proposal has been released; it contains a $9.2 billion cut to the department of education. $400 million will be spent to expand charter schools and private and religious school vouchers; their budget sets $1 billion aside to steer public schools toward choice-friendly policies. Funding for college work-study programs would be cut along with public-service loan forgiveness. Hundreds of millions of dollars that our schools now use to reduce class size, and provide mental health services for students would also be cut.Make sure your members of Congress know that you want them to defend public education and to reject efforts to create federal incentives for states to adopt school choice policies.'
