Trump's  budget is a declaration of war on public education and our nation's neediest children. It ends after-school programs which serve more than 1.6 million American children, most of whom are poor. It slashes programs that prepare disadvantaged  students for college. College assistance for first-generation students is also reduced.And yet there is ample funding for the school privatization agenda--$1.4 billion in all. a 50% increase for charter school funding.  a $250 million private school “choice” program. $1 billion for a fund portability program--which is nothing more than a disguised voucher system . Portability could bankrupt some public schools and slash funding for the rest. The Network for Public Education will not stand by and allow Trump to break our public school system and crush the dreams of millions of children. But we cannot fight without your help."
