internal discussion" about the president’s budget prior to its publication. R-Tenn. chairman of the Senate education committee referred to Alexander’s response in March to the release of Trump’s budget outline That statement emphasized that while the president may suggest a budget "under the Constitution Congress passes appropriations bills"Under the administration’s budget two of the department’s largest expenditures in K-12 education special education and Title I funds to help poor children would remain unchanged compared to federal funding levels in the first half of fiscal 2017 However high-poverty schools are likely to receive fewer dollars than in the past because of a new law that allows states to use up to 7 percent of Title I money for school improvement before distributing it to districtsThe cuts would come from eliminating at least 22 programs some of which Trump outlined in March Gone for example would be $12 billion for after-school programs that serve 16 million children most of whom are poor and $21 billion for teacher training and class-size reductionThe documents obtained by The Post – dated May 23 the day the president’s budget is expected to be released – outline the rest of the cuts including a $15 million program that provides child care for low-income parents in college; a $27 million arts education program; two programs targeting Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students totaling $65 million; two international education and foreign language programs $72 million; a $12 million program for gifted students; and $12 million for Special Olympics education programsOther programs would not be eliminated entirely but would be cut significantly Those include grants to states for career and technical education which would lose $168 million down 15 percent compared to current funding; adult basic literacy instruction which would lose $96 million (down 16 percent); and Promise Neighborhoods an Obama-era initiative meant to built networks of support for children in needy communities which would lose $13 million (down 18 percent)The Trump administration would dedicate no money to a fund for student support and academic enrichment that is meant to help schools pay for among other things mental-health services anti-bullying initiatives physical education Advanced Placement courses and science and engineering instruction Congress created the fund which totals $400 million this fiscal year by rolling together several smaller programs Lawmakers authorized as much as $165 billion but the administration’s budget for it in the next fiscal year is zeroThe cuts would make space for investments in choice including $500 million for charter schools up 50 percent over current funding The administration also wants to spend $250 million on "Education Innovation and Research Grants" which would pay for expanding and studying the impacts of vouchers for private and religious schools It’s not clear how much would be spent on research versus on the vouchers themselvesThere is currently only one federally funded voucher program in the District of Columbia A recent Education Department analysis of that program found that after a year in private school voucher recipients performed worse on standardized tests than their counterparts who remained in public schoolThe administration would devote $1 billion in Title I dollars meant for poor children to a new grant program (called Furthering Options for Children to Unlock Success or FOCUS) for school districts that agree to allow students to choose which public school they attend – and take their federal state and local dollars with themThe goal is to do away with neighborhood attendance zones that the administration says trap needy kids in struggling schools The documents cite Minneapolis (where parents can choose which city school their children attend) and Hartford Connecticut (where students can cross city-suburban lines to attend school) as examplesBut the notion of allowing Title I dollars to follow the student – known as "portability" – is a controversial idea that the Republican-led Senate rejected in 2015 Many Democrats argue that it is a first step toward private-school vouchers and would siphon dollars from schools with high poverty to those in more affluent neighborhoodsLeaders of historically black colleges and universities had sought an increase in federal funding for their institutions The administration’s budget proposal would hold funding flat compared to spending levels over the first half of fiscal 2017The administration is also seeking to overhaul key elements of federal financial aid The spending proposal would maintain funding for Pell Grants for students in financial need but it would eliminate more than $700 million in Perkins loans for disadvantaged students; nearly halve the work-study program that helps students work their way through school cutting $490 million; take a first step toward ending subsidized loans for which the government pays interest while the borrower is in school; and end loan forgiveness for public servantsThe loan forgiveness program enacted in 2007 was designed to encourage college graduates to pursue careers as social workers teachers public defenders or doctors in rural areas There are at least 552931 people on track to receive the benefit with the first wave of forgiveness set for October It’s unclear how the proposed elimination would affect those borrowersThe administration also wants to replace five income-driven student loan repayment plans with a single planThat change would likely benefit many undergraduate borrowers who currently can have the balance of their loan forgiven after paying 10 percent of their income for 20 years Trump’s proposal – which makes good on a campaign promise – would raise the maximum payment to 125 percent of income but shorten the payment period to 15 yearsThe proposal is less sweet for borrowers who take out loans to earn advanced degrees They currently pay monthly bills capped at 10 percent of income for 25 years Under the new plan they’d pay more (125 percent of income) for longer (30 years)There were no estimates on how much the government would save by eliminating public-service loan forgiveness overhauling the income-based repayment plans and ending subsidized loansThe spending plan supports year-round Pell Grants which allow low-income students to use the money for three semesters of college instead of two That way students can take a full load of courses year-round and earn a degree faster The administration also would increase available funds for year-round Pell by $163 billion over 10 yearsStill the maximum annual award would remain flat at $5920 And without any directive to index the award to inflation that ceiling might remain in place for the foreseeable futureTrump is seeking an additional $158 million for salaries and expenses in the Education Department up 7 percent money that according to the budget documents would go toward loan-servicing costs improved information-technology security auditing and investigations and additional security costs for the secretary DeVos has contracted with the US Marshals Service to provide security rather than using the in-house security team that guarded previous secretariesDespite that increase the agency workforce would decline by about 150 positions or 4 percentThe staffing decline at the department’s Office for Civil Rights – which is dealing with a large increase in discrimination complaints – would be steeperTrump is seeking $1068 million for the civil rights office unchanged from the funding level over the first half of fiscal 2017 But – thanks to a recent bump from Congress – the proposed total is $17 million less than the office is now receiving The spending proposal would result in the loss of more than 40 of roughly 570 positions (Reuters) – The United States and Mexico agreed on Monday to a sweeping trade deal that pressures Canada to accept new terms on autos trade dispute settlement and agriculture to keep the trilateral North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the White House was ready to notify the US Congress by Friday of President Donald Trump’s intent to sign the bilateral document but that it was open to Canada joining the pact The 24-year-old NAFTA is a trilateral deal between the United States Canada and Mexico that underpins $12 trillion in North American Trade Here are some of the main issues at the heart of the negotiations: AUTOS DOMINATE The new deal requires 75 percent of the value of a vehicle to be produced in the United States or Mexico up from the NAFTA threshold of 625 percent The higher threshold is aimed at keeping more parts from Asia out boosting North American automotive manufacturing and jobs Even if more plants are built in Mexico jobs will grow in the United States due to high levels of integration with studies showing that US parts make up 40 percent of the value of every Mexican-built car exported to the United States The pact also requires greater use of US and Mexican steel aluminium glass and plastics The provision started out as a US demand for 85 percent regional content with 50 percent coming from US factories That plan was vehemently opposed by Mexico Canada and the auto industry It later morphed into the US-Mexico deal’s requirement of 40 to 45 percent of a vehicle’s value to be made in high wage areas paying at least $16 an hour requiring significant automotive production in the United States Although full automotive details have not yet been released auto industry officials say it will allow Trump the ability to impose higher national security tariffs on vehicles that do not comply with the new thresholds Most Mexican auto exports are in a position to comply with the new limits the country’s economy minister said NO SUNSET Trump backed off from an initial US demand for a "sunset" clause that would kill the pact unless it was renegotiated every five years and which businesses said would stymie long term investment in the region Canada and Mexico were strictly opposed to the clause Instead the United States and Mexico agreed to a 16-year lifespan for NAFTA with a review every six years that can extend the pact for 16 years more providing more business certainty DISPUTE SETTLEMENT Mexico agreed to eliminate a settlement system for anti-dumping disputes NAFTA’s Chapter 19 The move sought by the United States puts Canada in a difficult position because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had insisted on maintaining Chapter 19 as a way to fight US duties on softwood lumber paper and other products that it views as unfair Ottawa now has less than a week to decide to accept a deal without that provision A settlement system for disputes between investors and states was scaled back now only for expropriation favouritism for local firms and state-dominated sectors such as oil power and infrastructure AGRICULTURE LABOUR The new deal will keep tariffs on agricultural products traded between the United States and Mexico at zero and seeks to support biotech and other innovations in agriculture It lacks a previous US demand to erect trade barriers to protect seasonal US fruit and vegetable growers from Mexican competition It contains enforceable labour provisions that require Mexico to adhere to International Labor Organization labour rights standards in an effort to drive Mexican wages higher NOW CANADA The US-Mexico NAFTA deal opens the door for Canada to immediately rejoin the talks and is a major step forward in updating the accord Canada which sat out the last leg of discussions while the United States and Mexico ironed out their bilateral differences is now pressured to agree to the new terms on auto trade and other issues to remain part of the three-nation pact Trump has presented this as a bilateral deal and threatened Canada with car tariffs Some lawmakers have said that a bilateral deal would face a higher vote threshold in Congress because the NAFTA fast-track negotiating authority law calls for a trilateral agreement (Compiled by Anthony Esposito in Mexico City and

confident his side have what it takes to get the better of title holders Real Madrid after the teams were drawn together in the Champions League on Monday The sides will meet in the last 16 surely not the tie PSG would have wanted after winning their group ahead of Bayern Munich File image of Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery during a press conference Reuters Real the two-time defending European champions and 12-time winners overall came second behind Tottenham Hotspur in their group and will host PSG in the Spanish capital in the first leg on 14 February "I don’t think it’s the worst draw possible I think we are of a level where we can play against Real Madrid" said Emery "If you want to do something big in the Champions League you have to play against the best sides" "I think these matches will be the centre of the footballing world when they come around" Bayern were rewarded for finishing behind PSG with a tie against Besiktas the Turkish champions while the French club will once again have to overcome one of the Spanish giants Last season Paris faced Barcelona in the last 16 and were eliminated in extraordinary fashion winning 4-0 at home in the first leg only to lose 6-1 in the return at the Camp Nou In that match Barcelona needed to score three times from the 88th minute onwards and did so But since then PSG have strengthened signing Neymar for a world record 222 million ($264 million) from Barca and beating Madrid to the signature of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco The tie will be the first meeting of the sides since the 2015-16 group stage when Madrid won 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu after a 0-0 draw in Paris "I have lots of friends in Madrid I know Real Madrid well too having watched a lot of their matches I know what the atmosphere is like there" said Spaniard Emery "It is a wonderful opportunity for us I am sure the team will be in perfect shape when the tie comes around" Meanwhile Emery admitted that he has allowed Neymar to return to his native Brazil to deal with a family matter The 25-year-old was suspended for Saturday’s 3-1 win over Lille in Ligue 1 anyway and now looks likely to miss Wednesday’s League Cup tie at Strasbourg where Paris lost 2-1 only 10 days ago "Neymar called me on Saturday He said to me he had a family issue and wanted to know if the club and I would allow him to go to Brazil to deal with the problem" said Emery "The person comes first then the footballer We gave him permission to make the trip I hope he’ll be back in three or four days but I don’t know if he’ll be back for Wednesday’s match" cda/as/lp Yes,Q.
