The Senate last week approved a spending bill that would give the Department of Education only a minimal increase in its total budget for fiscal 2006. The bill diverges from President Bush’s request, and the House version of the bill, in some notable ways. Here are selected programs:

FY2005 FY2006
Final budget President’s request House bill Senate bill
Title I grants to districts $12.74 billion $13.34 billion $12.84 billion $12.84 billion
Special education state grants 10.59 billion 11.10 billion 10.74 billion 10.74 billion
Education technology state grants 496 million 0 300 million 425 million
Striving Readers 25 million 200 million 30 million 35 million
High School Intervention 0 1.24 billion 0 0
Teacher Incentive Fund 0 500 million 100 million 0
Vocational education 1.33 billion 0 1.31 billion 1.31 billion
Pell Grants 12.36 billion *13.23 billion 13.38 billion 13.17 billion
TOTAL
Discretionary spending
$56.58 billion $56.05 billion 56.70 billion 56.70 billion

* The president’s Pell Grants request includes $33 million for Enhanced Pell Grants, which would provide larger grants for students who complete a rigorous high school curriculum.
