PreK-12 Policy & Budget Outlook, 2020-2021 provides information, data and analysis on education policy and funding, primarily at the federal and state levels.

The education policies of the Trump administration, education plans put forth by 2020 presidential candidates, the ongoing impact of the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act and state-level initiatives, are detailed. The most recent information available on funding for fiscal year 2020 and funding proposed for fiscal 2021 at the federal and state level is provided.

Over recent decades, presidents from both parties have proposed discretionary spending changes that raise funding for one program while eliminating another, with those proposals having limited impact. In the first three years of the Trump administration, federal education funding did not look much different than it did in the final years of the Obama administration.

State funding varies over time and from state to state, largely dependent on economic conditions in the individual states. Revenue collected fluctuates, and states are contending with long-term spending demands, such as pensions and retiree health care, and realizing the impact of federal tax changes on their state.

A bright spot for providers of instructional materials in 2020 is a positive turn in the adoption calendar. The largest opportunities for many years have been California, Texas and Florida—states that now account for the peaks as well as much of the volume and dollars on a continuing basis.
