Trump vs education system

by Olive Grey (2017-06-13)

As the writers from whom I buy research papers says, we have two billionaires whose children are/were privately educated deciding what is best for educating America's youth. Having said that and after reading this article there are a number of federally funded programs which have questionable value in my mind as federally funded under the Education banner. "Outline the rest of the cuts, including a $15 million program that provides child care for low-income parents in college; a $27 million arts education program; two programs targeting Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students, totaling $65 million; two international education and foreign language programs, $72 million; a $12 million program for gifted students; and $12 million for Special Olympics education programs" - Surely these should be local or state funded?
