Trump to offer exclusive contract to service US student loans

Supports for low-income and disabled students would be sacrificed to pump money into Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' crusades, including public funding for private and religious schools.

She's also expected to give details on a tax credit scholarship proposal. Another $250 million will be spent on "Education Innovation and Research Grants", which would be dedicated for expanding school vouchers for private schools and for studying the impacts of these vouchers.

Five divisions within the AFT represent the broad spectrum of the AFT's membership: pre-K through 12th-grade teachers; paraprofessionals and other school-related personnel; higher education faculty and professional staff; federal, state and local government employees; and nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Polis also slammed the budget proposal for shifting money away from schools with high levels of poverty to wealthier schools. With few private schools, rural states tend to rely heavily on their public schools.
