Republican Budget Would Slash U.S. Education Spending by $2.8 Billion

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled on Tuesday a spending bill for the 2016 fiscal year that would slash education spending by $2.8 billion over all, while providing increases for college-preparatory programs and the National Institutes of Health.
The measure, which an appropriations panel will take up on Wednesday, would revoke a $370-million surplus in Pell Grants, setting up the program for shortfalls in the future. But it would increase the maximum award in the short term, raising it by $140, to $5,915, in the 2016-17 academic year.
