Sen. Lamar Alexander Voices Opinion on Efforts to Roll Back Regulations under ESSA

March 4, 2017

Senate Education Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) authored an opinion piece on his efforts to roll back regulations under ESSA. Sen. Alexander argued that the removal of regulations is “not a trivial matter” but an effort to “restore to states, classroom teachers and parents decisions about what to do about their children in public schools.” Sen. Alexander’s resolution is co-sponsored by 10 Senators, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
