Last week, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order doing something unprecedented: establishing as the official policy of the federal government to “protect and preserve State and local control over” our nation’s education system.
You can watch the press conference and official signing of the document online.
President Trump’s executive order also directs US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to review every single regulation, guidance document, or other publication from the US Department of Education to see whether any of them violate laws limiting the federal role in education. The order specifically directs the secretary of education to “rescind or revise” any such regulations or guidance documents “no later than 300 days’ from yesterday.
