The School Choice & Education Opportunity Act

President-elect Donald Trump's 100-day action plan includes the introduction of the "School Choice & Education Opportunity Act." Mr. Trump has offered few details except that his plan would redirect $20 billion dollars away from existing federal programs to a new state block grant that could fund private, religious, and home schools. The plan also assumes that the states will provide another $110 billion from their own education budgets towards vouchers. 

On May 23, 2017, Trump introduced his FY2018 budget. It proposed a $250 million school voucher program. Neither the House nor Senate FY2018 appropriations bills included this funding.
