Trump’s budget will deal a heavy blow to public education. It will strip $10.6 billion from federal education initiatives (including enrichment and afterschool programs for poorer school districts, physical education, anti-bullying campaigns and advanced coursework), and funnel a big hunk of our money into private, religious and charter schools.

Script:  I’m calling (___) today to urge support for public education in the United States.  Trump’s budget strips critical funds from our public schools, which will negatively impact a whole generation of children.

“I have never canvassed before, but I will f—ing crawl door to door to make sure you lose.” A mild-mannered 60-year-old in Florida, to her Republican representative
