Cutting Funding for Public Schools Undermines Students and Nation

Alexandria, Va., (March 16, 2017) - NSBA Executive Director & CEO Thomas J. Gentzel today released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump's proposed budget: “The Administration’s proposed $9 billion cut to the education budget is irresponsible, and it would put programs and needed support services provided by schools at risk if it is adopted by Congress. The proposal redirects hundreds of millions of dollars from public schools – often, school districts that rely most heavily on federal aid, forcing them to cut vital services or raise local property taxes."
