    Trump to pull feds out of K-12 education

    Donald Trump to pull feds out of K-12 education - Washington Times

    President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to start pulling the federal government out of K-12 education, following through on a campaign promise to return school control to state and local officials.The order, dubbed the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” will launch a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and guidance for school districts and directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to modify or repeal measures she deems an overreach by the federal government.
    “For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less,” Mr. Trump said. “My administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states — give power back to localities.”
    You know, there are moments Trump get's it VERY VERY Right, this is one of them.

    This was done a year ago right? What about the results of the 300 day review?

    So does this mean we can eliminate DOEdu? Has Trump fired Betsy DeVos yet?

    Funny. I see two rightwing sites reporting it as if the order were signed this past April instead of a year ago.

    I don't see any follow-up reports regarding the results of the 300-day review.

    Actually, the EO was signed on April 26, 2017.

    I could be wrong but aren't most EOs usually used to gather information and not necessarily to effect policy?

    He so wants to be emperor, he's divesting power back to the states. Terrible

    More of the same, deregulation and moving away from Federal and towards states having the final say as it should be.
