Today, the Administration released the fiscal year 2021 budget request. For the U.S. Department of Education, the budget builds upon President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to expand educational freedom for all families and return power to local leaders. “This budget proposal is about one thing—putting students and their needs above all else,” said Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “Our budget puts an end to education earmarks. Instead of Washington politicians and bureaucrats forcing local schools to spend limited resources on D.C.’s priorities, this budget proposes putting state and local leaders, teachers, parents, and students themselves in control of education.”
The following materials show what this budget provides for the programs and activities of the Department of Education:
