See the New Federal Education Budget Signed Into Law by Donald Trump


October 3, 2018

President Donald Trump signed a spending bill into law last week that includes a boost for the U.S. Department of Education's budget.

In total, the bill Trump signed into law sets the department's budget at $71.5 billion for fiscal 2019, an increase over fiscal 2018 of $581 million, although that figure doesn't include a rescission of $500 million from Pell Grant reserves. In general, the fiscal 2019 budget impacts education funding for the 2019-20 school year. The spending package largely ignores the push from Trump and DeVos to create new school choice programs, as well as their proposals to cut the Education Department's overall budget.
