Trump’s Proposed Education Budget Puts Federal Initiatives on the Chopping Block

"A copy of President Trump’s proposed education budget has been leaked to the Washington Post," Marketplace reports.
 
"In total, the plan would eliminate $10.6 billion from federal education initiatives, including things such as after-school programs for the poor, teacher training, and surprisingly, work-study funding for college students. The cuts to work-study, together with other proposed rollbacks in college loan programs, would create an environment where one truth rises to the top: This budget would simply make it harder for students to afford college."
