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).
