Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Says
Common Core is NO MORE!
During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump vowed to end the disastrous Common Core – a failed experiment where the federal government took over the education of our children.
And, true to his promise, that’s exactly what is happening.
On Monday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said Common Core is no longer an issue for states.
“There’s isn’t really any Common Core anymore, and each state is able to set the standards for their state,” DeVos told Fox News.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said Monday that Common Core isn’t an issue states have to deal with anymore.
“There’s isn’t really any Common Core anymore, and each state is able to set the standards for their state,” Ms. DeVos said on Fox News.
Instead, the department is focusing on the Every Student Succeeds Act, which was passed in December 2015 but is still in the process of being implemented. It replaces the No Child Left Behind Act, but gives states more authority in how to rate and address schools’ performance.
It also prohibits the department from influencing states to adopt Common Core, a set of educational standards all 50 states could opt into with the possibility of receiving federal grants depending on their performance.
“The Every Student Succeeds Act, which is in the process of being implemented now, essentially does away with the whole argument about Common Core,” Ms. Devos said
