Department of Education Making School Choice More Important Than Student Loans

By on March 16, 2017

The latest press release out from the Department of Education makes no mention of the 14% or so budget cuts they will face and no new hope for federal student loan debtors that attention will be paid to their plight.

If students come first, as they say, then student debtors come last. Funding will be made easier and that’s a priority, not dealing with the aftermath.

I remain holding my breath that some news will come out that shows what DeVos plans to do to help those buried in federal student loan debt.

Here is the release:

“Today, the Trump administration released the FY 2018 Budget Blueprint: A Blueprint to Make America Great Again. This blueprint meets the President’s promises to support our military, prioritize border security, veterans’ health care, and school choice, and to eliminate hundreds of redundant, overlapping or ineffective programs.

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos issued the following statement:

“Today’s Budget Blueprint keeps with President Trump’s promise to focus the U.S. Department of Education on its mission to serve students. The budget places power in the hands of parents and families to choose schools that are best for their children by investing an additional $1.4 billion in school choice programs. It continues support for the nation’s most vulnerable populations, such as students with disabilities, while streamlining and simplifying funding for college and continuing to help make college education more affordable.

“Taxpayers deserve to know their dollars are being spent efficiently and effectively. This budget is the first step in investing in education programs that work, and maintaining our Department’s focus on supporting states and school districts in providing an equal opportunity for a quality education to all students. I look forward to continuing to engage with Congress as we roll out the President’s priorities and put the needs of students first.” – Source
