The Trump Administration is moving to boost federal funding for schools by boosting the number of students attending school from about 7 to 10 percent, the Wall Street Times reports.
The Trump Administration wants to double funding for preschools and preschool programs that provide preschool education to low-income families.
The move will also boost federal grants for elementary and secondary education, but it is unclear how much that will mean in practice.
The White House has long promoted the idea of increasing the number and quality of elementary and high school classes.
The idea has gained support from the Obama administration, which has made an effort to expand school attendance, as has Congress.
President Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, said during the first week of the school year that “children should have access to preschool education as soon as possible.”
The Trump administration has also sought to expand funding for elementary school programs that teach basic skills.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has also argued that the number one priority for schools should be to provide the best possible learning experiences for children.
The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
