A Primer on the Budget Resolution's Impact on Education Funding
Delisle, Jason
New America Foundation
The budget resolution put forward by Congress each year--which sets out the congressional budget plan for the next five years--and the ensuing budget process itself are enormously significant for education funding. However, the arcane procedures under which Congress produces and acts upon the budget resolution are often confusing to the media and education advocates alike. This confusion is made worse by political rhetoric and partisan spin. This brief by the New America Foundation's Federal Education Budget Project is meant to shed light on how the budget resolution affects education funding. (Contains 12 endnotes.)
