The election of Republican Donald Trump is sure to reshape
federal policy for education in significant ways, from
prekindergarten to college, especially coupled with the GOP’s
retaining control of Congress.
Although Trump spent relatively little time on education in his
campaign, he did highlight the issue from time to time, from his
sharp criticism of the Common Core and high student debt loads to
proposing a plan to significantly expand school choice. And
Congress has a long to-do list, including reauthorization of the
Higher Education Act.
