During a July 29 webinar, Alliance President Bob Wise gave a short overview of the federal education budget, as well as the process by which the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives allocate funding to the U.S. Department of Education. He discussed President Obama’s proposed 7.5 percent increase in discretionary spending for the U.S. Department of Education and the reaction it received from members of Congress who set funding levels for individual education programs. Wise also outlined funding levels for Title I, IDEA, and other education programs and reviewed federal funding that’s available to middle and high schools.
