WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that aims to reduce the federal governments role in K-12 education.
Trump is giving Education Secretary Betsy DeVos just short of a year 300 days to identify areas where Washington has overstepped its legal authority in education, and modify and repeal regulations and guidance from her department, if necessary. A report will be returned to the White House and eventually made public, officials said.
Trump complained that the government over the years has forced states and schools to comply with federal whims. He said the order will help restore local control over education.

Holy Enumerated Powers, Batman!
I love it !!
Now do the same for college. The feds, outside of grants for government research, have no business in that realm either.
What a WRECK The Globe has become.
Went and read the “article”; it contains SEVERAL that are repeated. Journalism, apparently, is not the only craft that has suffered a mortal wound; the core skill of WRITING seems to have fallen under the curse of a terminal illness.
Okay, this will directly affect thousands, if not millions, of NEA members and tenured professors.
President Trump had better make sure his Secret Service people are reliable. If any of them have teachers as family, he might want them put on another duty.
Limit the fed’s role? How about eliminate it?
Does this mean we can teach our kids Vocations instead of wierdo gender stuff?
We can teach science instead of fearmongering?
“Trump is giving Education Secretary Betsy DeVos just short of a year 300 days to identify areas where Washington has overstepped its legal authority in education, and modify and repeal regulations and guidance from her department, if necessary.”
Close the DOE. Defer to the states. End public education.
One to bookmark!
Extended news maybe?
"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." (My emphasis.)
But I’m happy to take one step at a time. I don’t care if this play gets us a TD, so long as we got a first down. And keep getting them.
Bump! Trump going nuclear with the constitutional option!
This is going to pizz some people off.
