2017 Education Budget Request

On February 9, 2016 President Obama released his Fiscal Year 2017 Budget. The President's budget request for FY 2017 includes $69.4 billion in discretionary funding, an increase of a 2 percent ($1.3 billion) over the 2016 appropriation.  The focus of the 2017 Budget includes increasing equity and excellence; providing support for teachers and school leaders; expanding access, affordability, and completion in higher education.

The budget supports the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), and replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, the previous version of the law that was enacted in 2002.

Details of the budget proposal include:
