Some education advocates are criticizing President Donald Trump’s new 2019 budget proposal because it zeroes out funding for several programs that benefit students.¬†The $4.4 trillion budget increases defense spending but envisions deep cuts in domestic spending. For example, it would eliminate the Gear Up program, which helps kids fill out college applications and access financial aid.¬†Sylvia Lazos, policy director for the group, Educate Nevada Now and professor of law at UNLV, says the program targets kids who are the first in their family to go to college.
