DeVos Double Standard When it Comes to Local Leaders?

April 18, 2018

Anne Hyslop examines the disconnect between U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ sharp criticism of state ESSA plans when speaking to the Council of Chief State School Officers and her other comments on local control. With a “cacophony of opinions on the topic, “it’s easy to forget how we got here: with the elimination of regulations to implement the law over a year ago, and a rushed process to replace them with a new set of expectations for state plans.” On this point, Hyslop says, “DeVos is more culpable for the contents of state ESSA plans than she cares to admit.”
