House panel cuts education budget, but not nearly as much as Trump - ANA RADELAT, CT Mirror

House appropriators rejected many of President Donald Trump’s proposed cuts to education, but trimmed some programs and eliminated others – including one that provides the state and local school districts with $25 million in teacher training grants each year. House appropriators also failed to adjust this year’s Pell grant awards for inflation, a move state officials say will cost Connecticut students $6 million in college financial aid next year. Trump proposed cutting the budget for the U.S. Department of Education by about $10 billion in fiscal year 2018.
