    Trump First President To Budget For Sending Education Bucks Back To States

    President Trump has become the first president to incorporate into his budget one of the few good federal education policy ideas: Sending Americansí money back to their states to decide how to use it.

    Federal education programs have wasted trillions, enriching contractors and bureaucrats who lobby for open taps while arm-twisting Americans into trusting them with their dollars and children against all evidence that trust is deserved. Even federal evaluations have repeatedly found that federal education programs are ineffective. The conclusion of a century of increasing federal involvement in education is unequivocally that if you want something in education, the worst thing you can do is task the federal government with it.

    Thatís why itís such a good idea to get the money back closer to the kids, where it belongs. The Trump administrationís aspirational 2020-21 budget proposal would block grant a substantial portion of K-12 dollars back to states. Itís an excellent first step towards eliminating federal meddling in local schools altogether, which President Trump has repeatedly said needs to happen. It would also be the only such step Congress has ever made, and thus their best move on education in a century.

    Not really a budget- Congress determines that. Plus the budget for this coming year was already passed. It does show some of Trump's priorities, though.


    The president's annual budget request is rarely – if ever – enacted in totality. For the most part, the document reflects an administration's ultimate wish list and provides congressional appropriators, who ultimately set funding levels, a spending roadmap of sorts.

    The Republican controlled Senate said they would not even waste any of their time discussing Trump's budget proposals.
