"... No Child Left Behind act of 2001, which President Bush signed into law last year. Among the cut

May 9, 2015

"... No Child Left Behind act of 2001, which President Bush signed into law last year. Among the cuts is a $400 million decrease in before and after-school programs that would affect 500,000 children, despite a report produced for the national organization Fight Crime: Invest in Kids that estimates the cuts would result in 41,000 crimes and cost taxpayers 2.4 billion... Further stretching law-enforcement resources, the Bush budget proposal would slash funding for the Community Oriented Policing Services program, credited with reducing crime nationwide from $1.4 billion to $164 million " a cut of 88 percent."
