Education grants: $18m
The money would be cut from Title I grants, according to a government report. The program is aimed at helping all students, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. More than 90 percent of the nation’s local educational agencies receive the funds.
The cut would mean 87 fewer schools would receive the funds and 26,495 fewer students would be served. The cut would also result in the loss of 250 education jobs, the report said.
