The Budget History Table of the Education Department since FY 1980 in PDF shows President's budgets and enacted appropriations for the major programs of the Education Department. The table also identifies Department totals for discretionary and mandatory spending. Spending for discretionary programs is determined in the annual appropriations process. In contrast, spending for mandatory programs is usually a function of the authorizing statutes creating the programs and generally is not affected by appropriations laws. To learn more about discretionary and mandatory spending in the Education Department, please see our description of the Department's Budget Process and Calendar.
