LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Know your voice before you sing

Should we tell Bob Rinearson (Aug. 2) that the Every Student Succeeds Act was authorized by Congress and signed into law in December 2015, replacing No Child Left Behind? A repeal of ESSA is highly unlikely because it was guided through Congress by Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.

“No matter what President Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos might claim, their power to influence K-12 education is limited — significant, but limited,” to quote The Koppan (Marva Ferguson). “But DeVos can stifle the law.”

Why? Trump is above the law, so he says via his actions.

My point is this: If Rinearson is going to be the moral voice in the community about public education, he should “know his song well before starting to sing.” (Bob Dylan).
