TICAS Statement on Trump Administration's FY19 Budget for Higher Education

February 12, 2018
Statement of James Kvaal

"The Trump Administration's proposed budget would push the cost of college even further out of reach for millions of students. It would raise student loan payments by more than $200 billion over the next decade. Additionally, it would cut the Department of Education's annual funding by almost $4 billion, while intentionally and unnecessarily leaving tens of billions of dollars on the table despite the bipartisan agreement on overall spending levels reached just last week."
