Trump orders study of federal role in education
from The Washington Post
President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that requires Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to study whether and how the federal government has overstepped its legal authority in K-12 schools, a move he framed as part of a broader effort to shift power from Washington to states and local communities. "Previous administrations have wrongfully forced states and schools to comply with federal whims and dicate what our kids are taught," Trump said at the White House. "But we know that local communities do it best and know it best." The order does not invest DeVos with any new authority. She already has broad powers to revise or withdraw policies that her predecessors promulgated.
