Biden’s Budget Invests Billions in Education Equity


President Biden released his full FY2022 budget request, which includes a 41% increase for the U.S. Department of Education. The $103 billion investment in education would expand public schooling by four years—through universal pre-K and free community college—and create a new $20 billion equity fund designed to address inequities in state and local school funding, teacher pay, advanced coursework, and preschool. Plus, Senators Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and Todd Young (R-IN) reintroduce the Fast Track to and Through College Act to provide high school seniors new pathways to college and reduce the cost burden of higher education, the U.S. Department issued new guidance on how federal COVID-19 relief funds may be used, and two more Obama administration alums, Catherine Lhamon and Lisa Brown, have been nominated for leadership roles at the Education Department.
