TRUMP SEEKS TO SHRINK ROLE IN EDUCATION

Metro USA (Boston) - - WKND -

1 Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Wed­nes­day or­dered Education Sec­re­tary Betsy DeVos to re­view the U.S. gov­ern­ment’s role in school pol­icy, which sup­port­ers cheered as the first step in cre­at­ing more lo­cal con­trol in education and crit­ics wor­ried could lead to lower qual­ity schools in poorer neigh­bor­hoods. DeVos has 300 days “to re­view and, if nec­es­sary, mod­ify and re­peal reg­u­la­tions and guid­ance is­sued by the Depart­ment of Education with a clear man­date to iden­tify places where D.C. has over­stepped its le­gal au­thor­ity,” said Rob Goad, a Depart­ment of Education of­fi­cial, ac­cord­ing to a tran­script of a White House call with re­porters.
