I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would advocate for someone in Washington to tell their children what they should study. I do believe the ESSA was passed in good faith, but sometimes things done in good faith have more negative consequences than intended. Additionally, the people in my home state have spoken and we are advocating for school choice to increase competition and encourage lower performing schools to improve. This isn't a partisan political game either. When certain school districts have underperformed for decades and nothing changes, it is worth taking a look at other options aside from funding to change these districts. Finally, if so many people are worried about Devos, returning power to states, and away from her, might just be a good thing.
