Chiefs for Change Applauds Approval of Critical Federal Funding for Education
CFC APPLAUDS APPROVAL OF CRITICAL FEDERAL FUNDING FOR EDUCATION
The federal spending bill approved by Congress and signed into law today by President Trump provides critical funding for schools, teachers, and students. Chiefs for Change, a bipartisan network of diverse state and district education Chiefs, is especially pleased that the measure includes $440 million for the Charter School Program, the highest-ever funding level in the program’s more than 20-year history, as well as significant increases to support disadvantaged children, identify evidence-based education programs, and promote pathways that lead to college and meaningful careers.
