More on the proposed Child Welfare Budget Cuts: Stay Tuned

This from yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel. Besides cutting Head Start funding drastically, the bill would cut Pell grants (without which I would not have been able to attend college), child care, healthcare and job training for older teens.

For a complete breakdown of the effects of the proposed bill state-by-state, go to the Children’s Leadership Council Website.

I’ll keep you all posted as I find out more.
