Government to switch to 1 student debt servicing company

Government to switch to 1 student debt servicing company

Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, called the Trump budget proposal "a nightmare for children". Thus it's probable that most of the money will be restored as Congress negotiates over the summer.

Altogether, the proposed budget cuts $10.6 billion from public education. Charter schools, on the other hand, can be a boon to families and students, as they largely have been in Los Angeles. At the state level, Gov. Charlie Baker recently pushed a ballot initiative that would siphon millions of dollars from public school budgets into the coffers of privately-run charter schools. In an op-ed published Friday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos calls the previous system, put in place under President Barack Obama, "chaotic".

In fact, the increased spending on the pale pastel version of school choice predominantly featured in the Trump education budget, where students are allowed to choose only from public schools, is just $1 billion, less than 10% of the overall $10.6 billion group of cuts.

Under Trump's proposal, 22 federal education programs would be eliminated.

The National Education Association is the nation's largest professional organization, representing more than 3 million elementary and secondary teachers, higher education faculty, education support professionals, school administrators, retired educators and students preparing to become teachers. But mot only is it ethically problematic for our government to treat college students like cash cows; it's also just another way to ensure more money for education is directed to the huge financial empire that profits off servicing those loans, refinancing the debt and collecting on loans that go into default. But for students pursuing advanced degrees, the proposed budget makes life considerably more hard.

Kentucky's congressional delegation should be on high alert, ready to protect this state's youngsters and the schools and programs that serve them.

Woodward warned, "If Congress approves this budget, you can be assured that our failure to provide reasonable support to our public schools now will lead to students, educators and the nation as a whole paying dearly later". "The administration also wants to spend $250 million on 'Education Innovation and Research Grants, ' which would pay for expanding and studying the impacts of vouchers for private and religious schools". "We never set it up in a way so that those funds could be diverted to support private schools", he said. The budget would take a meat cleaver to public schools, and children with the greatest needs would suffer the greatest harm.

While other programs will continue, their funds will be cut significantly. And their constituents would have plenty to say about chopping programs that aid the public schools on which they depend so that the president can have more money to leave his school-choice stamp on local districts.
