Betsy DeVos Looks to Curb Federal Overreach in Education in 2018
“to actually serve students rather than be more worried about compliance”
This is great news. It also explains why she drives big government liberals insane.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Betsy DeVos looks to curb federal ‘overreach’ in education
The Department of Education has its sights set on regulatory reform in 2018. Led by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, who often speaks out against what she calls a “one-size-fits-all” approach to education, the department is focused on reviewing rules and requirements issued by previous administrations, seeking to curb what she says is federal overreach.
That review will involve further consideration of the Obama administration’s Title IX guidelines on how campuses should handle sexual assault, which DeVos rescinded to the applause of many observers on both the Left and Right in September. A department source told the Washington Examiner they are working to have the draft rule out by March.
The source summarized the department’s broader goal as “reducing overreach the department has engaged in in the past,” in an effort to “[free] up educators and administrators and institutions to actually serve students rather than be more worried about compliance.”
Other priorities for DeVos will involve a further review of a gainful employment rule that proponents say protects students at for-profit colleges but which DeVos calls “overly burdensome.” The department also is reviewing borrower defense regulations, which establish when a student is eligible for federal relief given to students who have been defrauded by their schools.

Just shut this department down completely. The federal government has no business mucking around in education.
Or in much else.
