SEQUESTRATION: Are Major Cuts to Education Around the Corner?

On September 14, the Alliance for Excellent Education, Committee for Education Funding (CEF), and Coalition for a College- and Career-Ready America cohosted a webinar that focused on how sequestration would affect federal education programs and what impact the spending cuts would have on local school districts.

The webinar featured Phillip Lovell, vice president of federal advocacy at the AllianceJoel Packer, executive director of the CEF; and Tom Shelton, superintendent of Fayette County Public Schools in Lexington, Kentucky.

The webinar (1) provided an explanation of the overall budget process; (2) explained how sequestration would be implemented and its potential impact on early childhood, K–12 and higher education; and (3) discussed what advocates can do to discourage the U.S. Congress from making major cuts to education programs. Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
