Trump's Proposed Budget Undermines the Third Way Values and Major Policy Priorities of EDLOC



By Layla Avila and Sharhonda Bossier

The President’s recently proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2018, if adopted, would cut essential safeguards for our most vulnerable students, keep communities in or exacerbate poverty and entrench discrimination in our national education system. When examined through the lense of EdLoC’s Third Way Values and policy priorities, the punitive and extraordinarily short-sighted nature of the proposed programmatic cuts couldn’t be clearer.

The proposed budget stands in direct opposition to one of our central priorities: removing barriers our students and families face to exiting poverty and achieving economic mobility.
