What Education Issues Will Be at the Top of the Trump Administration’s Priority List?

November 22, 2016

Education Week examined what education issues will be at the top of the Trump administration’s priority list. The piece argued that states are “ready to push the ESSA envelope” and “people who hate the Obama administration’s draft ESSA regulations” will be a top priority for the new team. Republican leadership has repeatedly stated that “ESSA will be implemented as written.” The article also raised concern that the Trump administration may not “put the pedal to the metal” when enforcing sections of ESSA that the “civil rights community fought hard for.”
