In America:

  • More than 2,700 schools will lose critical federal funds, affecting nearly 1.2 million students in need
  • 70,000 young children will lose access to early learning services, and more than 10,000 teachers could lose their jobs.
  • Up to 30,000 children will lose access to child care.
