Trump has signed a new executive order that begins a review of the federal government’s role in K-12 education, giving Betsy DeVos not quite a year to figure out all the ways that previous administrations have overstepped their authority so they can rein it back in:
YAHOO NEWS – President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that aims to reduce the federal government’s role in K-12 education.
Trump is giving Education Secretary Betsy DeVos 300 days to identify where Washington has overstepped its legal authority in education issues.
The secretary will then be able to modify and repeal regulations and guidance issued by her department.
Trump says previous administrations have wrongly forced states to comply with federal whims and dictates. He says the order is “another critical step to restoring local control.”
The order is one of several Trump is signing this week as he seeks to rack up accomplishments by Saturday, his 100th day in office.
Here’s video of Trump announcing this:
