Colonial Williamsburg Education Resource Library: Learn More About the Office of the President

From Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Gazette:

Today, Donald J. Trump becomes the nation's 45th president. But did you know presidents weren't always inaugurated in January? January 20 was designated as inauguration day by the 20th amendment in 1933 (although the date moves slightly based on when the weekend falls). Prior to 1933, presidents were generally inaugurated on March 4, although our first president, George Washington, was inaugurated on April 30. At a time when traveling during the winter was much harder and nationwide votes took longer to compile and tally, a later inauguration made sense. Today, the January date reduces the amount of time between the election and the swearing in of the new president.

On December 12, 2016, the Education Oversight Committee (EOC) adopted budget recommendations for the 2017-18 fiscal year. The programmatic and funding recommendations made are designed to continue last year’s support of educators and students while accelerating innovation in education. Based on statutory authority, the committee members annually make recommendations for the spending of Education Improvement Act (EIA) funds, which are generated by the penny sales tax. In November, the Board of Economic Advisors projected that the EIA will generate $791 million in total revenues in fiscal year 2017-18, an increase of $39 million over the current year’s EIA appropriation base.
