Letter: White House budget is misguided

By
Published:

The White House just released a proposed national budget that includes extreme, unprecedented cuts to foreign aid. Congress must say “no.”

Here is just one of the many things on the chopping block: the chance for millions of children to achieve their simple dream of — and their right to — an education. With millions of children and youth out of school globally, the White House responds by eliminating the main account funding education. This is outrageous and nonsensical. What is for them a forgettable line-item in their massive budget is the future for millions of people who just want a chance to go to school.

Congress, do the right thing and reject these cuts.
