Ed Dept proposes easier access to federal funds for religious schools, emphasizes school prayer
from Education DIVE
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said in a press release she hopes the reinforcement of old guidelines and changes in grant requirements will "protect the constitutional rights of students, teachers, and faith-based institutions" and "level the playing field" between public and religious schools. However, education organizations are claiming this is an effort to push a larger agenda expanding private and religious schools while sidelining public education.
