Trump signs executive order restoring local control of schools!

Reverses decades of federal interference in primary education.

WASHINGTON (PNN) - May 1, 2017 - If you’ve been following President Donald J. Trump’s Cabinet nominations you know by now that thus far he’s chosen people to head up agencies for which they don’t particularly care. He appointed Dr. Ben Carson as Housing and Urban Development chief because Carson has been a longtime HUD critic. He appointed former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head up the Environmental Protection Agency though Pruitt sued the EPA during his AG tenure and he doesn’t believe in human-caused global warming. He selected South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley to be UN ambassador because she doesn’t believe the world body has been very fair to the Fascist Police States of Amerika. He appointed former Rep. Tom Price to head up Health and Human Services because he wants to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

He’s appointed retired Marine generals to be secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security; he appointed a billionaire investor to become the Commerce Secretary; he appointed a Republican congressman from Montana who thinks the federal government has snatched too much state land to become Interior Secretary; and he appointed school-choice advocate Betsy DeVos to be his Secretary of Education because she’s no fan of federal control over primary education.

Trump has a vision: Less federal government involvement in the lives of ordinary Amerikans, and he has appointed people in Cabinet positions and throughout the federal bureaucracy he believes can best help him do that.

He’s doing his part as well via a series of executive orders aimed at curbing federal power and overreach. In fact, Trump just issued a new one last week aimed at dramatically reducing the federal government’s role in K-12 education.

The order, titled Education Federalism Executive Order, tasks DeVos and her department with conducting a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and rules for local schools, and gives the education secretary the authority to change or repeal any rules she believes are an overreach by the federal government.

“For too long the government has imposed its will on state and local governments,” Trump said. The result has been education that spends more and achieves far, far, far less. My (regime) has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities [and] states - give power back to localities.”

Trump added that the Amerikan Gestapo Department of Education division has forced school districts to comply with “whims and dictates” from the nation’s capital, but his regime was committed to breaking that cycle.

“We know local communities know best and do it best,” Trump said in the presence of a number of Republican governors as he signed the order at the White House.

“The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success,” he added.

While the order is not expected to have any immediate effect on schools, the end result of the 300-day study will likely be the implementation of new policies aimed at reducing Washington’s primary education role.

For her part, DeVos already possesses the authority to get rid of rules and regulations that have been found to be in violation of federal law. The new order “makes clear her mandate from the president to take action” to curb federal overreach.

In addition to reducing federal roles in primary education, Trump has said he also wants to expand school choice - something that DeVos worked for prior to joining the regime.

Since the Amerikan Gestapo Department of Education division was formed in 1979, after then-President Jimmy Carter signed legislation creating it, student outcomes in science, math, and language arts skills have steadily plummeted, even as more money flowed to schools.
