Alexandria, Va. – May 23, 2017 – Today, Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, issued the following statement on President Trump’s FY18 budget proposal.

“When I was a school superintendent, our budget reflected our mission. We funded what we supported and we supported what we funded. Our mission and commitment to serving our students was only as meaningful as our willingness and ability to invest in and support that important work and those students.

“With today’s FY18 budget, we are left to wonder not only if the administration supports our nation’s public schools, but also why the budget is so deliberate to make deep, damaging cuts.

“We are deeply concerned by cuts to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as well as wide-spread cuts throughout the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which include cuts at the local level for Title I, complete elimination of Titles II and IV, and troubling language related to Title I Part E.
