President Bush has requested $50.3 billion in discretionary spending for the Department of Education for fiscal 2003 (which begins Oct. 1), an increase of $1.4 billion, or 2.8 percent. That would be less than a fifth of the 15.9 percent increase for the department approved by Congress and signed into law for the current fiscal year. This graph shows the recent appropriations for the department by fiscal year.
