Clare McCann was quoted in Inside Higher Ed on the symbolism of the Trump administration's education budget.

Clare McCann, a senior policy analyst with New America's education policy program, said just like the initial outline released in March, the budget is a messaging document.
"A Republican-controlled Congress and a Republican administration theoretically should be on the same page on a lot of this," McCann said of spending priorities. But she said it's highly unlikely that lawmakers would make most of those cuts, if many at all, in their own budget.
