Trump Aims to Limit Federal Role in Education

(26 Apr 2017) President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that aims to reduce the federal government’s role in K-12 education. He was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and governors, lawmakers and teachers.
Trump is giving DeVos just short of a year – 300 days – to identify areas where Washington has overstepped its legal authority in education issues. She will be able to modify and repeal regulations and guidance issued by her department, if necessary. A report will be returned to the White House and made public.
