===Trump/GOP agenda===*Trump’s proposed budget would '''eliminate $1.2 billion in funding for summer- and after-school programs''', [https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2017/03/trumps-education-budget-revealed/519837/?utm_source=atltw] such as the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, which provide services to students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools.
