KIPP Foundation Statement on President Trump's 2021 Budget Proposal

President Trump says that he supports Black and Latinx children but his budget says otherwise. The elimination of programs such as those supporting teachers, English Language Learners and homeless students will be detrimental to students and families. Also, he says he wants to support families who want a say in where their children attend school, but by collapsing the highly-successful Charter School Program into a block grant for the states his budget would severely limit that choice.
