EPSA Faculty on the President Elect

Since the Presidential Election, EPSA faculty have been discussing prospects for education policy under the incoming administration:
 
- At a conversation among education leaders in Washington, D.C. about the recent elections, Luis Huerta noted that "a call for [school] choice is one of the few knowns in [President-elect Donald] Trump's [education] agenda, but that fact invites at least as many questions as answers." The event at which Huerta spoke was co-hosted at the headquarters of the American Federation of Teachers by the union and the Albert Shanker Institute. 
 
- For Teachers College Views on the News, Michael Rebell noted that "there is likely to be less federal funding for schooling, more  emphasis on charter schools and privatization, and substantially less regulation and enforcement of civil rights laws and regulations by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR)."

- Immediately after the results, Aaron Pallas speculated in the Hechinger Report about the mystery of the President Elect's education agenda. Upon Betsy DeVos' nomination as Education Secretary, Prof Pallas' "hard look at two distinctly possible scenarios of “What’s the worst that could happen?”' was republished by the Washington Post.
