Education Spending in the Crosshairs - Andrew Kreighbaum, Inside Higher Ed

Many cuts proposed by Trump have been avoided in House appropriations bill, but GOP budget resolution could lead to major changes to student aid. Student aid advocates didn’t find much to like in a House education appropriations bill released last week -- lawmakers removed billions from the Pell Grant surplus while taking no significant steps to improve college access. But educators could at least find consolation in the fact that the committee didn’t follow through on the drastic cuts to many aid programs proposed in the White House budget in May. Advocacy groups found no such consolation in the House budget resolution released this week. The document calls for a rewrite of the tax code and for hundreds of billions in cuts to federal programs. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/07/21/gop-budget-would-mean-billions-cuts-higher-ed
