REPUBLICAN FY 2013 BUDGET PROPOSAL
DRAMATIC AND RECKLESS CUTS TO EDUCATION SPENDING


Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives began debate on its budget proposal for FY 2013, the upcoming fiscal year that begins October 1st. The debate resumes on the House floor today.

According to the White House:

• Funding for the U.S. Department of Education would be cut by more than $115 billion over a decade;

• Almost 10 million students would see their Pell Grants fall by more than $1,000 in 2014; and,

• Over the next decade, over one million students would lose support altogether.

Other analyses indicates that:

• Costs to educate more than 1.6 million students with disabilities would be shifted to states and school districts;

• As many as 200,000 students could be eliminated from the Head Start program;

• Upwards of 5 million - one in ten - U.S. students would see services reduced or eliminated because of cuts to the Title I program.
